Hsg-hysterosalpingogram- xray study in radiology suite- catheter placed through cervical canal; dye contrast introduced allowing indirect assessment of uterine cavity and tubes 3. Air-bubble test--ssi-new test where water and air bubbles placed instead of dye- done in office-.

In brief: X Ray
The easiest way is to have an x-ray called an HSG (hysterosalpingogram).
That is done at an x ray center where a small amount of dye is injected into the tubes while x rays are taken. A laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure, can also tell whether the tubes are open.
