Ultrasound - An abdominal, transvaginal or pelvic ultrasound helps to confirm the diagnosis of uterine fibroid. The number, size, and shape can be made out by imaging.

MRI - In cases where ultrasonography is inconclusive MRI scan is resorted to.

Biopsy - An endometrial biopsy may be performed. Here a sample of the tissue is taken for detailed study.
