Uterine anomalies

Women with a history of recurrent miscarriages and those having fertility problems are routinely offered tests to exclude the presence of uterine anomalies.  Three-dimensional ultrasound provides a simple and effective method for the diagnosis of congenital uterine anomalies.  The examination is best performed in the second half of the menstrual cycle and the diagnosis can be usually reached within a couple of minutes without the use of any medication or medical contrast media.  Three-dimensional scanning is also helpful to exclude the presence of intra-uterine adhesions, which sometimes occur following an operation on the uterus and may increase the risk of miscarriage and infertility.
