Automated three-dimensional coded contrast hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography: feasibility in office tubal patency testing
Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology, 05/31/2012
Exacoustos C et al. – Transvaginal hystero–salpingo–contrast–sonography (TVS HyCoSy) with automated three dimensional coded contrast imaging software (3D CCI) technology retains the advantages of conventional 2D HyCoSy while overcoming the disadvantages. Automated 3D volume acquisition permits the visualization of the tubal course by creating images of the tubes on the coronal view and obtaining a volume, so the tubal course can be evaluated in space. This allows less experienced operators to easily evaluate the tubal course.
