Private Hysterectomy Canada: Necessary Imaging Tests

A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus. Before performing a hysterectomy, several diagnostic tests and evaluations may be needed to assess the patient’s condition and determine the necessity and feasibility of the procedure. If you are looking for a private hysterectomy in Canada or the US, Health Vantis assisted many women with the planning and logistics of their consultation and surgery.

Necessary Imaging Tests

A current ultrasound or an MRI of the uterus is required to review your case. It has to be done within the last 6 months. We will need to obtain your radiology report and the actual scans for a GYN surgeon to review and determine if you may be a good candidate for a private hysterectomy.

Ultrasound

Transvaginal or abdominal ultrasound is used to visualize the uterus, ovaries, and surrounding structures to identify any abnormalities such as fibroids, tumors, or other conditions.

MRI

MRI may be recommended for further evaluation of pelvic anatomy and to assess the extent of any abnormalities detected on ultrasound.

Additional Testing May be Required

Sometimes after the review of the necessary testing, a GYN surgeon will require more information to make the best recommendation based on your particular situation. Below is a list of the tests that they may ask you to obtain. Most of them can be done locally and will require a requisition from your family doctor. The tests will be covered by your provincial health plan.

CT Scan

CT scan may be used in certain cases to evaluate the pelvic region and surrounding structures.

Laboratory Tests

Blood tests may be performed to evaluate the patient’s overall health status, including complete blood count (CBC), blood chemistry, and possibly tumor markers if indicated.

Endometrial Biopsy

In cases where abnormal uterine bleeding or other symptoms suggest a possible underlying condition such as endometrial hyperplasia or cancer, an endometrial biopsy may be needed to obtain a tissue sample for further evaluation.

Diagnostic Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting a thin, lighted scope through the cervix into the uterus to directly visualize the uterine cavity. It may be performed to evaluate the uterine lining, diagnose conditions such as fibroids or polyps, or assess abnormalities detected on imaging tests.

It is important to know that such surgery as a hysterectomy can not be done just because someone decides they want one. There has to be a medical reason for it, backed by diagnostic imaging and a surgical review and recommendation.
