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

Brings tubal evaluations into the office
Allows practices to offer a single visit ultrasound fertility evaluation
using your existing equipment.
An Innovative Device
The FemVue device delivers a continuous stream of saline and air
as contrast to make a patency determination.
A Clear Advantage
Tubal patency assessments performed in the office can save time and increase productivity.
Additionally, in-office procedures ease anxiety by providing your patients with a comfortable and familiar setting while avoiding exposure to radiation.
A Proven History of Sono HSG
Sono HSG using saline and air as contrast has proven to be well-tolerated by patients and offers acceptable concordance rates with HSG and LC.
Office-based procedures like Sono HSG are convenient and cost-effective for your patient when compared
to the hassle and expenses associated with going to a radiology center or hospital for an HSG.
