Saline infusion sono-hysterogram is a simple, minimally invasive new diagnostic procedure where a small amount of saline is introduced into the endometrial cavity to allow enhanced definition of endometrial cavity and its lining. 


If you are referred for a sonohysterogram, an initial trans-vaginal pelvic scan will be performed to detect any obvious pathology. The sonohysterogram will be performed by Dr. Indika Alahakoon by inserting a soft plastic catheter through the cervix into the cavity of the uterus and infusing saline to distend the cavity. Follow on transvaginal scanning will help to identify the shape of your uterine cavity and clearly detect any pathology of the lining such as endometrial polyps.


Combined 3D / sonohysterogram is available to investigate potential uterine malformations in women with a history of recurrent miscarriage or premature delivery, such as bicornuate uterus or septated uterus. Your doctor may also recommend this test to clarify any endometrial pathology suggested by a thickened or irregular endometrial lining during a routine pelvic scan.
