What is a Sonohysterography?
Sonohysterography is a procedure to look at the inside of the uterus. It’s a safe, painless test that uses sound waves and a computer to create images. It does not use radiation. The uterus (womb) is the organ where a baby grows during pregnancy. The bottom of the uterus is called the cervix. This is the opening into the uterus. The cervix sits at the top of the vagina. During sonohysterography, you’ll be awake and lying down with your knees bent. A slim wand called an ultrasound transducer is placed in your vagina. This wand is covered with a disposable sheath and coated with a special gel.
Who should get this test?
Ultrasound of Sonohysterography is usually ordered by doctors if you have these indications:
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine polyps
- Scarring inside your uterus
- Abnormal shape of the uterus
- Uterine cancer
- Abnormal menstrual bleeding

Is there radiation involved?
No. Unlike X-ray imaging, there is no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound imaging.
