Pelvic ultrasound can help identify abnormalities in the lower abdominal and pelvic organs such as kidney stones or bladder problems.
In women, pelvic ultrasound can help identify the cause of pelvic pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding and other menstrual problems. The scans can help diagnose and monitor ovarian cysts and fibroids in the womb, as well as ovarian and womb cancer.
In men, pelvic ultrasound can help identify abnormalities in the prostate and seminal vesicles (tubes that carry sperm).
Sometimes, ultrasound is used to help guide procedures such as needle biopsies. This is when a needle is used to take a small sample of tissue. The tissue is sent to a laboratory for testing. Your doctor uses ultrasound to see inside your body in real time and check the needle is reaching the correct tissue.


A renal ultrasound is an ultrasound of the kidneys that is used to diagnose kidney stones or kidney disease. It is a painless procedure that allows doctors to look for problems within the kidney.
