Saline Contrast Scan

This is a specialised vaginal ultrasound scan that gives more detail of the inside lining of the womb (endometrium). It is commonly used to diagnose uterine polyps and fibroids inside the womb. The procedure is performed while you are awake, and is safe and painless. A small volume of saline fluid is injected through the neck of the womb while the ultrasound scan is being done.
