For women with concerns about their gynaecological health, ultrasound provides detailed information on a multitude of symptoms. Ultrasound scans are valuable for the diagnosis and assessment of pelvic pain, polycystic ovaries, fibroids or menstrual problems.
Examinations are performed by specialist sonographers or and radiologists s who are experienced in performing gynaecological imaging, providing specialists with accurate diagnosis, often avoiding the need for more invasive procedures.
Stress or urge incontinence is a common problem in women, especially after child-birth. It is thought to affect millions of people. It results in involuntary leaking of small amounts of urine during physical movement, coughing, sneezing or exercising. Stress or urge incontinence can often be easily treated once correctly diagnosed.
MRI allows accurate diagnosis of this distressing condition. At European Scanning Centre, pelvic scans are performed with the patient sitting or standing, and repeated with the patient pushing down, straining into the pelvis. It is more physiologically relevant and offers a major advance in imaging this condition. MRI does not use x-rays and avoids the risk of radiation exposure, unlike traditional voiding cystograms
