A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an?X-ray test?that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes and the area around them. It often is done for women who are having a hard time becoming pregnant.What are X-rays? X-rays are electro-magnetic radiations that are produced by special machines called X-ray machines. These cannot be seen, felt or heard. How do X-rays work? Chest X-rayDifferent parts of the body behave differently with X-rays. While scanning chest X-ray , structures such as bone absorb X-rays, whereas air in the lungs lets all X-rays pass through. Thus, when X-rays pass through the body, when they come out, they have different strengths, depending on what parts of the body they have passed through. When these X-rays hit a film (like a photographic film), that film gets exposed depending upon this variation. Like a photographic film, this special film also needs to be developed, before we can see the final picture. Where are X-rays useful? X-rays have been used to view all parts of the body. Specifically, they are required for chest, all bones, joints and abdomen. Are there any dangers? Since X-rays involve radiation, there is a theoretical risk, though none in practice. In women who are pregnant, X-rays should be performed only after weighing all the risks. What are the dyes used with X-rays? X-RaysSometimes, artificial dyes are used to improve our ability to see internal structures. The common dyes used are either barium containing (barium sulphate) or iodine dyes. Barium sulphate is used for all barium examinations to study the stomach and intestines. Iodine dyes are usually injected in the veins to study the kidneys or during angiography, etc. Are there any complications of the dye? Five percent of the patients may get nausea and redness of skin. Though severe reactions are known, these are very rare and uncommon. However, in patients who have a previous history of allergy, asthmatics, those with renal and cardiac failure, a special dye is used which is more expensive but safer.
Hysterosalpingography (HSG), also known as uterosalpingography, it is a radiologic (X-Ray) procedure to investigate the shape of the uterine cavity and the shape and patency of the fallopian tubes. It injects a radio-opaque material into the cervical canal and usually fluoroscopy with image intensification. A normal result shows the filling of the uterine cavity and the bilateral filling of the fallopian tube with the injection material. To demonstrate tubal rupture, spillage of the material into the peritoneal cavity needs to be observed.
