Routine check-up to identify fibroids

 

Uterine Fibroids are sometimes found in asymptomatic women during a routine pelvic examination or incidentally during imaging.

That’s why routine check-up is fundamental for prevention.

Transvaginal ultrasonography is the standard clinical procedure of a gynecological examination. This technique is about 90-99% sensitive for detecting uterine fibroids, but it may miss subserosal or small fibroids.

Adding sonohysterography or hysteroscopy improves sensitivity for detecting submucosal myomas.

Sonohysterography is a special kind of ultrasound exam using a fluid to show more detail of the tissue. The fluid is put into the uterus through the cervix using a thin plastic tube. Sound waves are then used to create images of the lining of the uterus.

Hysteroscopy is carried out using a hysteroscope, which is a narrow telescope with a light and camera at the end sending images to a monitor.

All these techniques are unable to differentiate benign from malignant tumors.
