Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

A radiology procedure that examines the health of the uterus and fallopian tubes. A radio-opaque fluid is injected into the uterus and fallopian tubes and photographed via x-rays to check the shape of the uterus and tubes, and whether they contain any infections or injuries (such as fibroids, or scar tissue).
