What is saline infusion sonohysterography (SHG)?Sonohysterography is an ultrasound procedure to evaluate the inside of a woman's uterus, where a small volume of saline is inserted into the womb, through the cervix. Sonohysterography may discover hidden causes of different genital problems, such as abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility or recurrent misscariages.
This method can detect:
- Abnormal formations within the uterine cavity (fibroids or polyps)
- Endometrial adhesions / synechiae
- Malignant lesions / growths
- Congenital uterine defects
