The Sono HSG Procedure

Sono HSG is a safe, simple, and effective ultrasound alternative to the X-ray HSG.

The FemVue® Saline-Air device is used to introduce a consistent mixture of saline and air contrast in a controlled fashion for the tubal evaluation portion of the Sono HSG. The bright echoes of the air bubbles can be seen flowing into and through each fallopian tube, providing physicians an effective contrast to make a tubal patency determination.

Performed in a few easy steps

Tubal patency is determined by observing the saline and air contrast flowing into or out of each fallopian tube*
