Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain

What scan is needed?

CDS uses advanced 2D and 3D transvaginal scanning (TVS) techniques to identify the causes of pelvic pain and the presence of any endometriosis. We are globally recognised for our work in this field, and in promoting its use in the investigation of pelvic pain.

CDS specialises in the investigation of hormonal disorders which cause the majority of pelvic pain and/or abnormal bleeding.

What can it show?

There are many causes of pelvic pain although most tend to be gynaecological in nature.  Common causes are:

  • pelvic endometriosis: a condition where cells similar to the endometrial lining grow outside of the womb
  • adenomyosis: a condition where endometriosis develops within the wall of the womb
  • masses/fibroids within the womb
  • adhesions/scar tissue
  • ovarian cysts
  • infection
  • hormonal and menstrual issues

Note: Bloatedness is very rarely caused by ovarian cancer, and the majority of these cases are associated with hormonal disorders affecting the bowel.

Pelvic pain is often accompanied by abnormal bleeding. Find out more about common causes and how we can help here.
