It has a high definition camera to give clearer images of the womb lining than previous scanners.

Hysteroscopy is a diagnostic and operative procedure women can have done as an outpatient and it takes about 30 minutes.

If anything is detected, biopsies can ben removed and sent off for analysis.

Consultant George Richter said: “It’s better quality and high definition. It’s modern, better. It’s just so important, quality is priority.”
