Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

This is an x-ray procedure done to assess the uterus and fallopian tubes. This can be done to evaluate for blocked tubes or tubal pathology.

A speculum is used so that a thin catheter can be inserted through the cervix into the uterus. A dye or contrast material is then inserted via the catheter. Pictures are taken as the dye passes from the uterus to the fallopian tubes and spills out the end of the tubes. This can define structural abnormalities of the uterus as well as occlusion of the fallopian tubes.
