Gynaecology scans

Why would you need a gynaecological scan?

If you’ve had pelvic pain, unexplained bleeding, heavy periods, period pains, or bleeding after the menopause, you may need a gynaecology scan to check the health of your ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.

An ultrasound scan will give a clear view of your reproductive organs and will help determine a possible cause of the problem.

Most of our patients are referred to us by their gynaecologist, but you can also self-refer.

Our gynaecology scans can help to assist in detecting and monitoring many gynaecological conditions, a few of them are listed here:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian cancer screening
  • Premature ovarian failure, otherwise known as early menopause
  • Polycystic ovaries (PCOS)
  • Fibroids & polyps
