76830 is the code for transvaginal ultrasound
For the 3D:
  • 76376 3D rendering with interpretation and reporting of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, or other tomographic modality; not requiring image postprocessing on an independent workstation
  • 76377 3D rendering with interpretation and reporting of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, or other tomographic modality; requiring image postprocessing on an independent workstation
Many carriers will bundle or deny the 3D as investigational. If this was something very unusual that required the 3D rendering, I would bill it, prepared to appeal.

can you clarify meaning of postprocessing on an independent workstation?

76377
The provider performs interpretation and reporting for computed tomography (CT) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, or other tomographic modality under concurrent supervision with the added complexity of image postprocessing by 3D image rendering. The technician does the reformatting work on an independent workstation. The technician takes multiple thin section images and rebuilds a three–dimensional image from them. Both need a concurrent supervision of image postprocessing three–dimensional manipulations of the data set and image rendering. The major characteristic feature of this procedure is that the provider performs image postprocessing within a separate workstation. The benefits of 3D interpretation are that it provides different 3D complex renderings, 3D image recovery, 3D image segmentation, and quantitative analysis.

It would be highly unlikely this was needed for an IUD check. Even the 76376 would only be for a very unusual case.
