  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 3D SIS in comparison to 2D SIS in the diagnosis of focally growing lesions (polyps or fibroids) in women with abnormal uterine bleeding or subfertility with hysteroscopy as a reference test.

In addition we will evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 2D+3D SIS (compared to 2D SIS) in the diagnosis of focally growing lesions (polyps or fibroids) in women with abnormal uterine bleeding or subfertility with hysteroscopy as a reference test. In this case, any abnormality on any of the two modalities will be regarded as a positive result (‘OR’ approach).

The secondary objective is, where possible, to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 3D SIS in comparison to 2D SIS in type of abnormality (to differentiate between polyps and fibroids) in women with abnormal uterine bleeding or subfertility using histology as a reference.

In addition we will evaluate, where possible, the diagnostic accuracy of 2D+3D SIS in type of abnormality (to differentiate between polyps and fibroids) in women with abnormal uterine bleeding or subfertility using histology as a reference.
