Menopause – Diagnosis & Treatment

Imaging

Some imaging techniques can be used to diagnose menopause in women. These include CT scan, fluoroscopy, ECG, or MRI. However, these options are not used so often for this purpose. Ultrasound could show some details of the ovarian volume and follicle counts to help you find out if menopause has happened or not. It is advisable to keep continuing with frequent imaging health screens even after you have reached menopause or perimenopause. This should also include mammograms to check for breast cancer. Similarly, visit your healthcare provider to have the first colonoscopy to examine for colon cancer. [2]
