Abstract

Abstract In non-pregnant women the ultrasonic appearance of the uterine cavity is a central linear echo. A new technique of hysterography, in which 0·9% saline solution is instilled into the uterine cavity, separates the uterine walls and allows the resulting hydrometra to be displayed by ultrasonic scanning. With this technique the full thickness of the uterine wall and the surrounding structures are visualised in relation to the uterine cavity, whereas with X-ray hysterography or hysteroscopy the cavity alone is seen. None of the five patients tested experienced any undue discomfort, and there were no complications.
