    Hystero-Salpingogram

    Description:

    This x-ray exam is performed to evaluate the uterus and fallopian tubes. It is most often used for infertility testing. Both your gynecologist and the hospital radiologist will be present for this exam.

    Preparation:

    There is no preparation for this exam. You may eat and drink normally prior to the exam. You should take any prescribed medications at the usual time. You may wish to bring a panty liner as you may have slight bleeding after the procedure.

    Procedure:

    This procedure takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
    When you arrive at the hospital, sign in at the front desk in the main lobby. Your personal information and insurance information will be taken by one of the admissions personnel. Then you will be called back to the radiology department and asked to change into a hospital gown. You will then be asked to lie on the x-ray table. Your gynecologist will insert a small catheter into the cervix using the same procedure as a pelvic exam or obtaining a PAP smear. X-ray "dye" will be introduced into the uterus from the catheter in the cervix. Your gynecologist and the hospital radiologist will observe this "dye" on a special TV screen attached to the x-ray unit. The radiologist will take some images of the uterus and fallopian tubes. After the final images are taken, you will be free to leave and resume your normal activities as your gynecologist has prescribed. The radiologist will review the images that were taken and a report will go to your gynecologist within 2-3 business days.
