Description: This 3d medical animation explains the procedure of a Dilation and Curettage, known as a D & C. It begins like a routine pelvic exam, but with anesthesia. A speculum is inserted, then dilating rods are used in sequence to open the cervix. A hysteroscopy may be performed at this point. Then a curette is used to remove tissue from the lining (endometrium) of the uterus.
