Hysterosalpingography / Sonohystography
Hysterosalpingography is an X-Ray examination of a woman’s uterus and fallopian tubes that uses a form of X-Ray called fluoroscopy with a contrast material.
Fluoroscopy is a special X-Ray technique that makes it possible to see internal organs in motion. When the uterus and fallopian tubes are filled with a water-soluble contrast material, the Radiologist is able to view and assess their anatomy and function.
Hysterosalpingography is primarily used to examine women who have difficulty becoming pregnant. It allows the Radiologist to evaluate the shape and structure of the uterus, the patency of the fallopian tubes, and any scarring within the peritoneal cavity.
