Endometriosis scans

Bowel preparation is now recommended when GP’s are referring patients for an endometriosis scan. Bowel preparation allows for clearer images and a more comprehensive assessment of the pelvic area which may influence surgery-related decisions.

Bowel preparation is always mild and usually well tolerated. Commonly it requires the patient to take a mild laxative the night before the ultrasound and an enema within an hour before the ultrasound.
