HSG Examination To Detect Ovarian Cysts?

. can you see a cyst from the HSG results?

1 Answer:

Hello Evi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

HSG or hysterosalpingogram is an examination to look at the fallopian tubes (the connecting channel of the uterus and ovaries) and uterus using contrast fluid and X-ray. This examination is usually done on women who have difficulty conceiving and suspected interference with the fallopian tubes.


Basically the contrast fluid and Xray will not be able to see the presence of cysts in the ovary. However, there is currently an HSG-type procedure that uses ultrasonography (USG) called a sono-hysterogram. On sono-hysterograms the examination is done not by using X-rays, but by using ultrasound, and not using contrast fluid, but only using sterile fluid to help see whether there is a blockage in the fallopian tube. On this sono-hysterogram can also be seen other abnormalities in the uterus and fallopian tubes such as if there are fibroids (myomas), polyps, or cysts in the ovary.


You should discuss again with the obstetrician who conducts an examination on you to find out more clearly the procedure performed by your doctor and the results.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
