Diagnostic Hysterescopy

Diagnostic Hysterescopy

Hysteroscopy is the visual examination of the canal of the cervix and interior of the uterus using a thin, lighted, flexible tube called a hysteroscope. The device is inserted through the vagina. Hysteroscopy may be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The hysteroscope allows for easy visual access to the interior of the cervix and uterus to assess the lining of these structures. Therapeutic maneuvers, such as taking a tissue sample biopsy, removal of polyps or fibroid tumors, or preventing bleeding with cautery destruction of tissue by electric current, freezing, heat, or chemicals may be performed during a hysteroscopy procedure.
