Ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool for any woman and also their treating specialist. The more detailed the ultrasound scan report is, the better guidance on what treatments or monitoring may or may not be needed after that.
I usually recommend my patients to seek out a comprehensive tertiary level ultrasound. The ultrasound is performed transvaginally (internally). Ultrasounds like these are usually provided by a Women’s O&G ultrasound group that specifically work in Gynaecology, Obstetrics and IVF related enquiries only.
When booking an ultrasound, we use clinics that are equipped with state of the art ultrasound systems. We can also suggest appointments with particular sonographers who have specialist training (COGU) or subspecialty training in areas like ultrasounds to diagnose endometriosis. Specialist imaging groups do come at a cost as their ultrasound fees may be higher than general imaging groups. There is a rebate available on ultrasounds with private ultrasound groups via Medicare.
Some of the private ultrasound groups we refer to are listed below;

A comprehensive internal ultrasound can make a significant difference to accurate diagnosis and preparing a course of treatment. For further information, please get in touch with our clinic nurse on (03) 94287572
