Abstract

The objective was to design and to evaluate the sensitivity of the non-contrast ultrasound techniqueof "mobile (hydro) acoustic window" (MHAW) which could be used during the routine transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) for improvement to visualize of pelvic objects. It has been demonstrated that the use of non-contrast ultrasound MHAW-technique during the routine transvaginal ultrasound is an effective diagnostic method for assessing the anatomical and some functional characteristics of the fallopian tubes in female infertility. The MHAW- ultrasound technique is very convenient and informative when there is doubts the fallopian tubes anatomy or functionality. However, it should be emphasized that the method requires a special skills from the sonographer. The sensitivity of MHAW-technique may be less for women with some individual ultrasonic and anatomical features of pelvic organs and tissues. The obtained information may have a crucial importance if choosing the optimal algorithm for the infertile couple when suspicions of altered anatomy arise. The MHAW-technique provides a good opportunity for both anatomical and functional of the fallopian tubes evaluation the fimbrio-ovarian relationship and tubal ovum pick-up including. MHAW is easy and affordable ultrasound technique which can be used in cases of unexplained infertility.
