A hysteroscopy is an examination of the uterine cavity. Using a camera called a hysteroscope, it makes it possible, by passing through natural channels, to establish a diagnosis, detect abnormalities, take samples and when under general anaesthetic, perform surgical procedures such as a curettage or polyp removal. It is often performed in conjunction with gynaecological surgery, but can also be done at the doctor’s office.
