Incorporating routine ultrasound imaging into gynecological practice can help save time and money while also increasing patient satisfaction.
Fremont, CA: Gynecologists are no longer limited to one-dimensional, blurry ultrasound images. New ultrasound technology has advanced significantly, allowing clinics to upgrade from 2D to 3D ultrasound systems. 3D ultrasound provides comprehensive views of the uterus and cervix anatomy, allowing access to imaging planes that are impossible with 2D equipment. Gynecologists can employ 3D ultrasound to gain a better image of and identification of anomalies and check the placement of IUDs, allowing them to improve diagnostics, efficiency, and patient satisfaction.
3D ultrasound imaging technology enhances patient care
In recent years, 3D ultrasound imaging has advanced significantly, with improved image quality and robust diagnostic capabilities. These qualities enable clinicians to make more accurate and minimally invasive diagnoses than in the past.
Drives advanced gynecology practice
Gynecologists have been able to improve diagnoses and patient satisfaction with the use of new ultrasound equipment with 3D imaging. In comparison to 2D imaging, 3D imaging enables a vision of the coronal plane, which significantly improves diagnostic capabilities and functionality for routine activities such as IUD implantation.
Assists in IUD placement
When performing an IUD installation process in 3D ultrasound, greater detail of the coronal plane is obtained, which aids in identifying correct positioning. Given the prevalence of IUDs, it is critical to ensure appropriate insertion while also identifying any potential complications.
Enhances patient experience
Ultrasound can be used to enhance the patient experience. Patients receive prompt responses in an environment that is familiar to them and from a physician they trust. Ultrasound imaging at the moment of care enables greater collaboration between doctor and patient in decision-making.
Improved patient care and satisfaction
While 3D ultrasound is frequently used in obstetrics, it also benefits patient care in gynecology. This technique is more accurate than 2D ultrasound or other, more invasive methods – and it is less expensive than MRI or other imaging instruments. Additionally, patients can receive answers in-office, without requiring an additional referral, enhancing patient satisfaction.
