  1. Resource Description
    Transvaginal ultrasound is performed to access the pelvic organs including the ovaries, ovarian follicles, uterine corpus, uterine cervix and endometrium. Detailed descriptions will be obtained per the specific requirements of the research protocol. This summary refers to the general approach to vaginal ultrasound. The transvaginal ultrasound is performed using a GE Voluson-i ultrasound equipped with an 8 mHz vaginal transducer. The ultrasound transducer is cleaned and cold sterilized after each use. Prior to each use, the probe is covered with an ultrasound sheath. A small amount of ultrasound coupling gel is placed inside the sheath prior to placement over the probe. Additional lubricant is placed on top of the sheath prior to insertion into the vagina.
