Is MRI accurate in detecting hydrosalpinx of fallopian tubes? As hsg report says distal dilation hydro but mri report says "no evidence of hydrosalpin

Discrepancy: Hysterosalpingogram is reliable for diagnosis of hydrosalpinx, perhaps get the films reviewed again. Once a HSG diagnosis is made, I do not typically get a MRI for confirmation. The MRI is reported as no hydrosalpinx, then that is what it is. I presume you had the tests done for infertility evaluation, so if no pregnancy in the next 6 months (provided all else normal), consider laparoscopy. ...Read more

My wife was confirmed that, one of the fallopian tube was blocked when tested by hsg, can she ovulate and how do we know.

My wife was confirmed that, one of the fallopian tube was blocked when tested by hsg, can she ovulate and how do we know.

Can ovulate: Ovulation occurs even when tubes are blocked. The ovaries take turns having the mature egg. Using ultrasound we can see which side has the mature egg. It is possible to conceive with ovulation on the blocked side by the egg crossing over. If the tube is blocked at the far end - hydrosalpinx - this could be affecting implantation. If the hsg showed hydrosalpinx she should see a md to remove it. ...Read more
