Hysterosalpingogram: normal

Case contributed by Dr Yair Glick


Has been trying to conceive for a long time.

Patient Data

Age: 30 years
Gender: Female

Contrast material seen filling up the uterine cornua and the length of the fallopian tubes, then beginning to spill out to the peritoneal cavity.

Case Discussion

Normal hysterosalpingogram (HSG) showing contrast material flowing freely through the fallopian tubes, then spilling out to the peritoneum, i.e. no obstruction.

Of note: despite the short duration of fluoroscopy time, one should attempt to use the collimator to reduce the imaged area as much as possible. This not only decreases irradiation to the patient but also results in better image contrast.
