“Safety and Efficacy of Sonohysterosalpingography for the Evaluation of Infertility”
This pilot study is a collaborative effort between Northwell Health's Departments of Fertility and Radiology.The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of the Sonohysterosalpingography (sonoHSG) for it to be determined as the standard of care. Additionally, it aims to improve the work up of infertility by integrating the examination of structural abnormalities of the Fallopian tubes and uterus into a single radiation free ultrasound guided procedure, the sonoHSG.
Procedure - sonoHSG
This procedure uses agitated saline to produce air bubbles at the time of the Sonohysterogram which optimizes fallopian tube visualization. The sonoHSG is free of radiation and use of contrast. In this study, in order to produce the air bubbles at the time of the sonohysterogram, the investigators will be using a continuous saline-air device that may produce a technically superior image. For the ultrasound images, General Electric will be supporting us by providing us the Voluson E10 and RIC5-9- ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
