A hybrid radiography/MRI system for combining hysterosalpingography and MRI in infertility patients: Initial experience AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ROENTGENOLOGY Freeman-Walsh, C. B., Fahrig, R., Ganguly, A., Rieke, V., Daniel, B. L. 2008; 190 (2): W157-W160


We evaluated the feasibility of a prototype hybrid radiography/MRI system in evaluating infertility patients. Pelvic MRI was followed by hysterosalpingography (HSG) without moving the patient. This system allowed evaluation of tubal patency and cross-sectional imaging with one examination.Our hybrid radiography/MRI system provided good-quality HSG and MR images. We were able to assess tubal anatomy and patency and uterine anatomy and to detect pelvic abnormalities, including fibroids and adenomyosis. Furthermore, MR images and radiographs were superimposed to clarify HSG findings.
