Diagnostic hysteroscopy is an examination which enables very accurate assessment of the uterine cavity – its shape, mucous membrane (endometrium) and oviduct outlets. The examination consists in introducing a thin endoscope into the uterus, through the cervix. During the examination, the doctor sees the inside of the uterus at high magnification on a monitor – he is able to see all the changes such as polyps, adhesions or myomas even if they are very small. During the examination, you can also take the material for the subsequent markings.
Hysteroscopy is performed on a gynaecological chair under local anaesthesia or analgosedation. The examination is performed in the first half of the cycle (after the end of menstruation).
