Abstract

The purpose of this article is to elucidate the current role of saline infusion sonohysterosalpingography (SIS) in evaluation of various uterine pathologies. SIS improves visualization of the endometrium and pathologies related to endometrial cavity, as well as it can simultaneously assess tubal patency. SIS provides high-resolution images, and three-dimensional (3D) reformatted images provide excellent orientation for radiologists as well as the clinicians about the underlying pathologies. This article will discuss imaging technique, indications, pearls, and pitfalls in imaging, diverse disease pathologies, and ultimately compare performance of SIS among other different imaging modalities. SIS as an adjunct imaging modality results in a greater diagnostic yield for diverse uterine pathologies.
