Are There New Developments in HSG Screenings?
HSG, while being a test that has been in practice for many years, involves many significant innovations due to rapidly advancing technology. These innovations can be summed up in three main sections.
- New contrast materials have allowed the reduction of complications such as allergy or peritonitis, and eliminated the risk of embolisms.
- The new, C-arm computerized radiography devices have eliminated the need to pull on the Uterine with a hook to position it. Higher quality images can be obtained by using low radiation.
- The development of new techniques and catheters has transformed HSG into a painless and highly complication-free practice.
