Hydrosonography testing now available at Laniado

dr WeintraubWomen living in the center of Israel and the Sharon region will now have access to hydrosonography examinations – a minimally invasive ultrasound procedure that can determine if there are abnormalities that could interfere with pregnancy

The test - a 3D ultrasound imaging scan of the uterus and the fallopian tubes  that does not entail exposure to x-ray or iodine - will be performed by the director of the IVF Unit at Laniado, and deputy director of the obstetrics and gynecology department, Dr. Amir Weintraub.
The test is used to assess infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, irregular bleeding, and to check and rule out suspicious findings such as polyps, adhesions, obstructions, malformations, and more. Also makes it possible to evaluate the uterine cavity in advance of  IVF treatment
The scan, which is widely used throughout the world, is playing a growing role in Israel as a substitute for a hysteroscopy or photo of the womb.
