Female infertility is most commonly caused by a blockage of the fallopian tube, where eggs pass from the ovaries to the uterus. In some women, these tubes become blocked or narrowed, preventing conception and successful pregnancy.
Through a nonsurgical procedure, our Interventional Radiologists can diagnose and treat a blockage in the fallopian tubes called selective salpingography. During the procedure, which does not require an incision, a thin tube (catheter) is placed into the uterus. A contrast agent, or dye, is injected through the catheter, and an X-ray image of the uterine cavity is obtained. When a blockage of the fallopian tube is identified, another catheter is threaded into the fallopian tube to open the blockage.
