Diagnosis of Uterine Myoma

Reading time: 1 min
  • Clinical examination. Reveals the size and shape of the uterus.
  • Gynaecological ultrasound. The technique of choice to determine the size and number of fibroids, their location and vascularisation, appearance of the endometrium and adnexa.
  • Endometrial biopsy. This is not necessary in women who do not have bleeding.
  • Hysteroscopy. This is used for the diagnosis of submucosal fibroids.
  • Additional analytical study. Performed in patients with symptoms of heavy menstrual bleeding and anaemia syndrome.
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance. Accurately reports the size, number and location of fibroids; it has a great capacity for diagnosing degenerative changes and adenomyosis.
