Sonohysterography (Ultrasound of the Uterus)

Sonohysterography, also known as saline infusion sonography, is a special, minimally invasive ultrasound technique. It provides pictures of the inside of a woman's uterus.

A Doppler ultrasound study may be part of a sonohysterography examination.

Doppler ultrasound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates blood as it flows through a blood vessel.
