Prompt diagnosis of gynaecological is extremely important. At Reproductive Health Group, our dedicated centre with its state of the art facilities offers on site diagnostic imaging and testing for many gynaecological issues. This means that patients can be treated quickly in one place and under one clinical team.
Our comprehensive list of gynaecological diagnostic tests include:
Hysteroscopy or visualisation of the uterine cavity is a test carried out to see if anything is wrong inside the womb (uterus). Find out more about hysteroscopy.
Laparoscopy is an operation carried out under general anaesthetic which enables examination of the pelvic cavity and pelvic organs (uterus, tubes and ovaries). Find out more about laparoscopy.
HSG (hysterosalpingogram) is a screening test to assess the patency of fallopian tubes, which is an important requisite for conception. Find out more about HSG (hysterosalpingogram).
Saline Infusion Sonography
This technique involves the use of fluid to distend the uterus (womb) coupled with a high-resolution transvaginal (internal) scan. Find out more about saline infusion sonography.
This is an internal ultrasound scan that specifically looks at the fallopian tubes to investigate whether they are blocked or not. Find out more about HyCoSy.
Ultrasound scans are quick, painless and effective in diagnosing gynaecological issues. All our Consulting rooms have ultrasound scanners so scans can be performed instantly by our Consultants. Find out more about ultrasound scans.
Cervical Smear Test
A cervical smear test is carried out to check if the cells on the neck of the womb (cervix) are normal. If left untreated any abnormal cells can lead to cancer. By testing regularly cancer of the cervix can be prevented. Find out more about cervical smear tests.
Cervical Health Check
A Cervical Health Check is a comprehensive suite of tests to screen for abnormal cells on the cervix. The check also includes testing for HPV virus and Chlamydia infection. Find out more about this important check.
Colposcopy is a detailed examination of the neck of the womb (cervix). It is usually carried out in a colposcopy clinic by a doctor or specialist nurse who has specific training and experience in colposcopy. Find out more about colposcopy.
Vulvoscopy is microscopic examination of the skin of the vulva and uses the same microscope as colposcopy. Find out more about vulvoscopy.
Tumor markers are substances that are produced by cancer or by other cells of the body in response to cancer or certain benign conditions. Find out more about tumour markers.
