Ηysterosalpingography

Hysterosalpingography, also known as uterosalpingography is a series of static radiographs obtained after injecting a radio-opaque fluid into the cervical canal. The fluid fills the lumen of the cervix, the uterine cavity and finally flows through the fallopian tubes into the peritoneum.

Hysterosalpingography is performed on the 10th-11th day of the cycle and is mainly used to assess the cervical lumen, the shape of the uterus and the shape and patency of the fallopian tubes.  It is also used to investigate congenital anomalies of the uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes and determine the presence and severity of tumor masses, adhesions and uterine fibroids. Hysterosalpingography can also diagnose and occasionally open blocked fallopian tubes.
