Examination for Hydrosalpinx:

1. Hysterosalpingography: This is the most reliable method for diagnosing hydrosalpinx. The X-ray manifestations of hydrosalpinx include the entire fallopian tube being visualized, with obvious fluid accumulation and dilation at the fimbrial end. There may be partial or no dissemination of contrast medium from the fimbrial end into the pelvic cavity. Laparoscopy can also be used for examination, revealing enlarged and swollen fallopian tubes during the acute phase of salpingitis, and later, closure of the fimbrial end.

2. Ultrasonic diagnosis: Some cases of hydrosalpinx can be detected ultrasonically, mainly during the acute inflammatory phase of the fallopian tube. Inflammation of the fallopian tube can cause blockage of the fimbrial end, resulting in the accumulation of inflammatory exudate within the lumen of the tube. This can manifest as abnormal echogenicity in one or both sides of the uterus, with enlargement of the fallopian tube and a sausage-like appearance. The lumen may show low echogenicity or punctate echogenicity.

3. Laparoscopy: This can directly confirm the presence of hydrosalpinx. Under laparoscopy, the adhesion between the fimbrial end and surrounding tissues can be observed, and the function of the fallopian tube can be assessed. However, laparoscopy is an invasive procedure with high costs and is generally not the first choice for diagnosis. It is often used after confirmation by hysterosalpingography during treatment.
