Caption: Endometrial polyp. Coloured 3-D ultrasound scan of a polyp (upper centre) on the endometrium lining of the uterus. Endometrial polyps are benign growths, which often cause no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they may include irregular bleeding, vaginal discharge and abdominal pain. Treatment of endometrial polyps is by removal of the endometrium by curettage through the vagina and cervix. Ultrasound is a diagnostic technique that sends high frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure. 3-D scanning uses computer technology to return more detailed images than 2-D scans.
