Owing to its image resolutions and its convenience in diagnosis, both better than abdominal ultrasound, transvaginal ultrasound is nowadays widely applied in diagnosing practice in obstetrics and gynecology. As a result, female examinees who undergo these check-up procedures have to expose their private parts, instead of their abdomens like the old days. According to the literature, women who receive transvaginal ultrasound check-ups normally have anxiety reactions, and worry about pain and discomfort. In clinical practice, when giving advice to the examinees to go through this check-up, more than often the diagnosis itself is its sole purpose, and little psychological assistance is offered. Traditional clinical space and disposal process tend to be designed to serve the purposes of conforming to the customs of medical staff and to the integrity of human resources and facilities in the hospital managers' minds, and less frequently tend to take the needs of patients into consideration. Consequently these patients are forced to enter strange medical environments and accommodate to the existent medical systems, with physical and psychological discomforts, to suffer from even more uncomfortable and anxiety-causing check-ups. Current medical service is required to not only provide a clean environment, but also give attention to creating an artistic space to increase healthy factors to the environment. The literature points out that a comfortable and artistic space can eliminate environmental strangeness, and help patients to soothe their pressures caused by their own and by the environment.
