Working in women's and reproductive health research: the DETECT study

Dr Tatjana Gibbons, a DPhil student at Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health, University of Oxford talks about the DETECT study, which uses a new 20-minute imaging scan to detect the most common types of endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a condition where small pieces of womb lining grow outside of the womb, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Common symptoms include severe pelvic pain and difficulty getting pregnant.
