What is Ovarian Cancer Screening Scan?
At Private Ultrasound we hold a special Ovarian Screening UKCTOCS licence for this type of screening.
Ovarian Cancer Screening ultrasound is a safe and pain-free examination, using high frequency sound in order to look for any signs of ovarian cancer.
The ultrasound scan is one part of the screening and clients also need to take a CA125 blood test at their Doctor’s or Gynaecologist’s.
We can provide details of the specialist Doctors we work with in Harley Street should you need it.
How is the Ovarian Cancer Screening scan performed?
This is a trans-vaginal scan, which is painless, safe and does not cause discomfort.
It is performed internally as that allows for much clearer images of the ovaries.
It is important to notify us if you are allergic to latex.
What will the scan examine?
During the screening, we will be looking for the following:
Fluid collections within ovaries, uterus or pelvis
What is included?
- A full medical ultrasound diagnostic report
- High resolution images digitally and hard-copy if needed
Is someone available at the clinic to discuss further questions/ concerns after the scan?
Yes, an ultrasound specialist Doctor will be available to talk to if you have additional questions or concerns.
Should you need to have your CA125 blood test and are not sure where to go, we can provide details of reputable specialist Doctors we work with in the vicinity.
What are the preparations for this scan?
