Introducing our new Gynaecology Ultrasound Centre

The Gynaecology Ultrasound Centre is our new fully integrated, high quality, one-stop clinical and diagnostic service for women with concerns about their gynaecological health.

Ultrasound examination provides critical information about the causes of many gynaecological problems.  Scans are helpful in the assessment of women who are experiencing pelvic pain, menstrual problems or difficulties in becoming pregnant.

Ultrasound is particularly helpful for the diagnosis and management of various complications of early pregnancy.

Conditions we treat include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Menstrual problems
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Menopause
  • Ovarian swelling
  • Fertility problems
  • Uterine anomalies
  • Early pregnancy complications

The services we offer include:

  • transvaginal ultrasound
  • transabdominal ultrasound
  • 2D and 3D scans

To make a referral to our gynaecology ultrasound centre, email enquiries@kingedwardvii.co.uk.
