This is a study of the uterus and uterine (fallopian) tubes. A catheter is passed through the cervix, and sterile contrast material is injected through it into the uterus. This is performed with fluoroscopic guidance, and radiographs are obtained to document the anatomy. Note the extravasation of the contrast into the intraperitoneal space as it reaches the end of the uterine tubes. This represents the location of the ovaries, and highlights the communication between the uterine tubes and the intraperitoneal space.


Identify the following:

1. catheter

2. uterus

3. uterine tubes

4. extravasated dye (intraperitoneal)
