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.

  1. New contrast materials have allowed the reduction of complications such as allergy or peritonitis, and eliminated the risk of embolisms.
  2. 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. 
  3. The development of new techniques and catheters has transformed HSG into a painless and highly complication-free practice.
