Endometrial Lining Scan

Endometrial Lining Private Ultrasound Scan


Endometrial Lining Scan is a gynaecological Ultrasound assessment of your endometrium (the lining of the womb) designed to assess its structure, thickness, how it correlates with where you are in your cycle or responsiveness to treatment stimulation, as well as its shape, to ensure normal appearances. Also, we will assess the womb, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and surrounding structures. This type of scan aims to ensure normal thickness of the lining of the womb to appropriately time natural conception or any form of assisted conception (such as IVF), as well as to rule out any structural cause that might explain difficulty conceiving, recurrent miscarriages, generalized pelvic pain or any other related issue.


  • You will be asked a series of questions related to your menstrual period and relevant medical history
  • We will perform endometrium, uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes ultrasound, and tubes and take high-quality representative images
  • Explain ultrasound findings and answer your questions or concerns within our scope of practice
  • Issue a digital copy of the report after or within 24 hours, containing relevant images for you to keep for your records, or take to your GP or specialist
  • Recommend a follow-up ultrasound scan if necessary
  • Offer a GP or specialist referral and a Blood Test if deemed necessary

There is a wide range of findings we may find during your Endometrial Lining Ultrasound scan assessment, aside for normal thickness of the lining, the most common are:

  • Endometrial lining being too thin
  • Uterine fibroids (benign growth in the muscle of the womb)
  • Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled structure within the ovaries)
  • Endometrial polyps (benign growth within the lining of the womb)
  • Polycystic ovaries (suggestive of hormonal imbalance)
  • Uterine malformations (the shape of the womb may vary)
  • Hydrosalpinx (fluid within fallopian tubes)
  • Adenomyosis (condition when the cells of the lining of the womb implant within the muscle of the womb)
  • Endometriosis (condition when the cells of the lining of the womb implant within the surrounding pelvic structures)
  • Evidence of pelvic inflammatory disease

Depending on the Ultrasound findings or referrer request, you may need a blood test to better correlate the scan results.

This scan is generally performed transvaginally (internal scan) for optimal views on an empty bladder.

The Ultrasound Specialist will explain the procedure before your scan. You will be provided with a gown to respect your modesty in the likelihood of an internal scan. It will then involve the insertion of the tip of the transvaginal probe, covered with a latex-free probe cover with a small amount of sterile gel into the vaginal canal. Our specialist will have to slightly move the probe to assess the relevant anatomy and to produce high-quality diagnostic ultrasound images. You may feel mild discomfort during your ultrasound scan; however, you can stop or pause the examination at any moment. The endometrial lining ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 5-10 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.

You will get the results verbally after the scan, followed by a digital copy of the report with relevant images after or within 24 hrs.

Ultrasound scan itself is not considered harmful. Your safety is one of our top priorities; therefore, we strictly adhere to BMUS guidelines for the safe use of Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment and scanning times, as well as respect the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
