What scan is needed?
CDS uses advanced transvaginal scanning (TVS) techniques to check the overall healthiness of the ovaries and pelvic organs. We are recognised worldwide for our pioneering work in this field, and in promoting its use in the investigation of pelvic disease.
What can it show?
TVS increases the ability to detect ovarian and uterine cancers, with greater accuracy and at a much earlier stage of the disease. It can differentiate between malignant and benign lesions and disease very effectively, and can also be used to check other areas such as the bladder and bowel.
TVS is a very effective way of assessing the endometrium (lining of the uterus) to check for evidence of cancer as well as monitoring patients on HRT.
NOTE: There are more deaths from ovarian cancer than any other form of gynaecological cancer within the UK. Treatment of the disease has not significantly improved in recent years mainly because of failure to detect ovarian cancer at a relatively early stage.
Modern transvaginal ultrasound imaging available at CDS provides tremendous reassurance to the vast majority of women attending for ovarian and pelvic health checks.
