Diagnosis and Screening for Gynecologic Conditions
At some point in their lives, most women will require diagnostic screening for a gynecologic condition, whether it’s related to the reproductive system, breast health, or a pregnancy.
Screening tests may be used for early detection and prevention, such as annual pap smears to screen for cervical cancer or breast scans to detect breast abnormalities. Other tests are used to definitively diagnose a suspected disease or condition, such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) to look for fetal chromosomal abnormalities or an endometrial biopsy to identify cancerous cells.
