TREATMENTS AND PROCEDURES
Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray test of female fertility potential. This is performed to examine the fallopian tubes and uterus of a woman who is experiencing difficulties in becoming pregnant. Also, it can supply a hint towards potential miscarriages resulting from disorders within the uterus, and it also helps in determining the existence and severity of tumor masses, uterine fibroids, and adhesions.
Ultrasound is a painless and safe procedure which creates images of the unborn child. Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography or ultrasound scanning, involves the use of ultrasound gel placed directly on your skin and a small transducer (probe). At Motherhood, the procedure does not include the use of ionizing radiation. Hence, it is safe for the monitoring and diagnosis of pregnant women.
You will be asked to lie face-up on a test table that can be easily moved or tilted. Then, a trained supervisor will apply a warm water-based gel to the abdomen. This gel will allow a secure contact with the body and eliminate air pockets between the skin and the probe, which can prevent the sound waves from passing into your body. The transducer is placed in such a way that it can be moved back and forth to capture the desired image.
A pediatric ultrasound is an examination of the child’s abdomen with the help of an ultrasound machine. The procedure involves an ultrasound gel and a small probe (transducer) that uses sound waves to produce an image. It is a non-invasive medical examination that helps our experts diagnose and treat abdominal pain. It also yields useful information about other organs such as the liver and kidneys.
An X-ray is one of the most commonly used techniques for imaging the body’s internal structures. X-rays require a small amount of radiation to visualize internal structures and help doctors diagnose and monitor the condition of patients.
