The in-office hysteroscopy is an attractive option for patients and doctors. This minimally invasive procedure has proven accurate when diagnosing abnormalities in the endocervical canal and endometrial cavity. This procedure lets doctors examine the uterus to diagnose abnormal bleeding and, in some cases, provide treatment.
What Is An Endosee?
An Endosee is a hand-held device that is used during a hysteroscopy. It’s compact and portable, making it ideal for smaller spaces. It includes an LCD screen that gives doctors a clear image. It is capable of taking still photos and videos and is equipped with a channel for fluid infusion.
During the procedure, a thin tube is passed through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. Once inside, a small camera will begin transmitting images that your doctor can review. This provides a detailed picture of any abnormalities.
