  • MRI is the best imaging technique to get the most information about fibroids, and it’s what we use at North Texas Fibroids. It clearly shows fibroids that are not visible on ultrasound and provides the most detail when it comes to the size and position of the fibroids. An MRI can also show other potential sources of your symptoms.


  • The simplest and quickest way to look for fibroids is through an ultrasound. It can show if you have fibroids in your uterus and can give a general idea of the size of each fibroid.

Physical Exam

  • Your doctor or gynecologist may discover one or more fibroids during a routine physical exam. Fibroids often cause the uterus to increase in size, which means a doctor that does a pelvic exam may notice if your uterus is enlarged and might even feel the fibroids.

Clinical History

  • Your doctor or gynecologist can take note of the history of your symptoms and determine if you have fibroids. Fibroids are so common that if you have several fibroid symptoms, your chance of having one or more uterine fibroids is high.
