Hysterosalpingogram and Fallopian Tube Recanalization in Houston, Texas
A hysterosalpingogram, also known as an HSG test, is an X-ray test that is used to take pictures of the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes, as well as the surrounding area. Often, women who are infertile or are having trouble getting pregnant use this test to help detect problems in the reproductive organs that could be preventing pregnancy. It can also be used to detect conditions such as polyps, foreign objects and other abnormalities, or to check the success of tubal implant surgeries.
During the HSG procedure, a contrast agent (dye) is injected by a Synergy Vascular and Interventional radiologist into the uterine cavity through the cervix. A fluoroscope X-ray is then used to image the fallopian tubes and to help the radiologist assess a possible blockage.
HSG is typically performed in less than an hour and you can return home immediately after the test. If the HSG test shows that your fallopian tubes are blocked, you may be a candidate for a procedure called fallopian tube recanalization, which will clear blockages in the fallopian tubes, opening them up to promote fertility.
