What is the difference between and hsg with saline and one with dye?

After my last miscarriage I was referred to an RE in NYC who did a series of tests (I had had 3 previous mcs) and then also did an hsg with saline to see if my tubes, ovaries and uterus looked OK. I know there was another version of the test and was wondering what the difference was. Is one better than the other?

Also are there things that you cannot see that might be better seen with a laparoscopy? when would you schedule a laparascopy? Under what conditions?

thanks in advance

The son hysterogram with salins can provide information about the uterine cavity, but very little about the tubes. The X-ray hystersalpingogram, if done properly, provides data about both tubes and uterine cavity. One of the more common causes of recurrent pregnancy loss is an abnormal formation of the uterine cavity. Please see the information I have provided on our web page, <www.texasfertility.com>. Either study has the potential to determine if that is the problem.
Good luck.
