More reason to SHG

A study published in the Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons preformed by Uchenna C. Acholonu, Jr., MD, James Silberzweig, MD, Daniel E. Stein, MD, and Martin Keltz, MD found:

  hysterosalpingography (HSG) sonohysterography (SHG)
Sensitivity 58.2% 81.8%
Specificity 25.6% 93.8%
Accuracy 50.3% 75.5%


In addition, anecdotally, most everyone I’ve read about online says that the SHG is much less painful than the HSG.

Guess what I’m going ask my RE about tomorrow?!
