Abstract

HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-contrast sonography) is the investigation of choice for the evaluation of tubal patency as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) (2004) - now the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence. Role extension and development in Ultrasound has led to sonographer-performed HyCoSy being undertaken in many UK centres in recent years. However, published audit surrounding sonographer-performed HyCoSy is limited. The aim of the study was to evaluate success/failure rates of cervical catheterization in women referred for HyCoSy examinations in a sonographer-led service in a hospital setting and to explore the methods and techniques identified in the literature for improving success.
