A hysterosonogram is a minimally invasive ultrasound technique specially designed to help with a pregnancy that is high risk. Women who have infertility issues, excessive bleeding or who have had multiple miscarriages may be recommended this type of prenatal testing.
Also known as a saline infusion sonography, saline ultrasound or sonohysterogram, its main purpose is to determine abnormalities in the uterine cavity that may be interfering with a pregnancy. These may include:
It is particularly helpful before an IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment. A hysterosonogram is an effective way to detect uterine issues because it involves infusing a sterile liquid into the collapsed uterus walls which helps the doctor identify problems easily.South Florida Perinatal Medicine invests in the latest techniques and equipment so that we can help women with high risk pregnancies enjoy positive results.

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I have read up on quite a bit of expecting moms experiences with their ultrasounds around the country and they were less then favorable, some horrible. But our (my husband and I) visit to your Baptist office was wonderful. The office is nice and decor is great. The tech was patient and educated. She answered all our questions, some before we even asked. She gave us her undivided attention and took her time. I am looking forward to my next appointment. Great service provided!"
