What Does Endometrial Biopsy Involve?
An endometrial biopsy is a procedure performed at Jefferson to obtain a small tissue sample from the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium. After the biopsy, the endometrial tissue is examined under a microscope to identify the presence of abnormal cells, or the effects of hormones on the endometrium.
