What are the benefits of virtual hysterosalpingography?

By Dra. Paula Fabra Roca (gynecologist).
Last Update: 11/26/2021

Virtual hysterosalpingography would be the evolved version of this classic technique. The procedure is the same, but instead of performing a simple x-ray after the contrast injection, a computerized tomography (CT) scan is performed.

This technique allows us to have a better visualization of the uterus and the tubes since the CT scan offers much better image resolution. In addition, this test gives the possibility of observing the relationship of these organs with their neighbors, allowing 3D reconstruction of the images.

Even so, virtual hysterosalpingography is not routinely used in daily clinical practice, since the useful information it provides is not much greater than that of classic hysterosalpingography and the costs are much higher.
