  • Overview

    Each year there are more than 2.5 million visits to gynecologists for the evaluation of abnormal uterine bleeding in reproductive age and post-menopausal women. The impact of AUB on a patients’ quality of life can range from mild to severe and the importance of effective clinical care cannot be overestimated. Determination of the extent and severity of AUB symptoms can be difficult, therefore the evaluation of the uterus is an integral component in this process.

    Join Dr. Ted Anderson and Dr. Ethan Goldstein as they discuss the importance of direct visualization of the uterine cavity in establishing the likely cause of AUB, how to interpret the findings of diagnostic hysteroscopy and review the benefits of in-office diagnostic hysteroscopy in the health care delivery system.
