What’s Involved in a Uterine Fibroid Diagnosis?

Diagnosing uterine fibroids typically involves a comprehensive evaluation by a healthcare provider to assess symptoms, perform a physical examination, and order diagnostic tests as needed.

Common steps in a uterine fibroid diagnosis include:

In some cases, additional procedures may be recommended to evaluate the fibroids further or rule out other conditions, including:

Fibroid Ultrasound

A fibroid ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure used to visualize fibroids on or in the uterine cavity. Sound waves are transmitted through the abdomen or inserted into the vagina (transvaginal ultrasound) using a probe. These sound waves bounce off the pelvic organs, creating detailed images of the uterus and any fibroids present.

Fibroid ultrasound helps healthcare providers determine the size, number, location, and characteristics of fibroids. It is a valuable tool for diagnosing fibroids and assessing their impact on surrounding structures. Additionally, fibroid ultrasound is often used to monitor fibroid growth over time and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment interventions.

Overall, fibroid ultrasound is a safe, convenient, and widely available imaging modality that plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of uterine fibroids.

Pelvic MRI

Similar to an ultrasound, a pelvic MRI is a highly effective non-invasive imaging tool used for evaluating uterine fibroids in detail. It provides comprehensive information about the size, number, location, and characteristics of fibroids, helping healthcare providers make accurate diagnoses and plan appropriate treatment strategies.

Due to its superior soft tissue contrast resolution, MRI can distinguish between fibroids and other pelvic masses, such as ovarian tumors or adenomyosis. Additionally, MRI can assess the degree of fibroid involvement in the uterine wall (intramural), protrusion into the uterine cavity (submucosal), or extension outside the uterus (subserosal).

Pelvic MRI is particularly valuable for evaluating complex cases, guiding treatment decisions, and monitoring fibroid response to therapy over time.
