What advantages does virtual hysterosalpingography have over conventional hysterosalpingography?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 11/26/2021

Virtual hysterosalpingography allows a more complete diagnosis to be made because much more detailed images are obtained, both of the interior and the walls of the organs. It also makes it possible to obtain information on other organs located in the pelvis, apart from the uterus and the tubes, and can create three-dimensional images.

In addition, it causes less discomfort to the woman and the risks associated with iodinated contrast and radiation are also lower.
