DIS is one of the few, if not the only, freestanding outpatient imaging center that performs the Essure® Confirmation Test.
What is Essure®? Essure® is a surgery-free permanent birth control procedure that works with a woman’s body to create a natural barrier to prevent pregnancy.
The Essure® Confirmation Test is performed three months after an Essure® procedure and usually takes about 30 minutes. During the test, a special dye is introduced into a woman’s uterus. Using an x-ray, our radiologist can verify that the inserts have been correctly placed and fluid cannot flow past them. This confirms that your tubes are completely blocked.

This confirmation test is a low-level hysterosalpingogram. Our average prices for hysterosalpingograms are substantially less (in one example, 67% less) than area hospitals. We provide a friendly, relaxed and comfortable outpatient environment during your visit.
