While commonly associated with pregnancy, ultrasounds are used to diagnose a variety of gynecological conditions as well. At Broadway Gynecology, in the Financial District of New York City, New York, our team uses the state-of-the-art GE Logiq E  and Butterfly IQ ultrasound machines to produce clear, accurate pictures for our patients in order to diagnose a variety of conditions.

What is diagnostic ultrasound?

Based on the sonic ability of bats, diagnostic ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create visual pictures of internal organs in the body. First used for diagnostic purposes in the 1950’s, today ultrasounds are performed as a part of routine prenatal care. However, their clinical goes far beyond telling the gender of an unborn baby.

Because it’s non-invasive, meaning it doesn’t require opening your body (like surgery), it is used to see injuries to soft tissue, cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, blood flow into and away from organs, and structural anomalies inside the body such as fibroids.

What can I expect from a sonogram?

Broadway Gynecology most commonly performs 4 types of ultrasound examinations – transvaginal scans, advanced scans, fetal scans and Doppler scans. Transvaginal scans require the insertion of an ultrasonic wand into the vagina in order to see the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina, and cervix. Advanced scans are used to examine the breasts for masses or other anomalies.

Fetal ultrasounds examine a fetus for growth, anatomical problems, or birth defects while Doppler scans can be performed during any ultrasound examination to look at the blood flow into or out of an organ. Your nurse will give you detailed instructions on how to prepare for your ultrasound. Since ultrasound examinations are non-invasive, there’s no recovery time and you can return to normal activities the same day.

What makes the GE Logiq E ultrasound different?

Broadway Gynecology uses the GE Logiq E ultrasound machine in all of its diagnostic ultrasound processes. Where many other ultrasound machines produce grainy, unfocused pictures, the GE Logiq E delivers incredible and reliable image quality that allows our providers to visualize the internal organs of the body with better accuracy.

These crystal clear pictures can then be used to diagnose and treat a variety of obstetric and gynecological issues a patient is experiencing. Faster and more accurate than other machines, the GE Logiq E gives expectant mothers beautiful pictures of their baby while also providing all of the necessary diagnostic information Dr. Goltyapina needs to treat her gynecology patients.
