Background Information: Knowledge of various pathologies affecting the female reproductive system and findings related to infertility are essential arsenal in the body imager’s toolbox. This multimodality exhibit aims to review these conditions in a quizlike fashion to encourage a structured approach for evaluation and increase retention of imaging pearls.

Educational Goals/Teaching Points: The goals of this exhibit are to review congenital and acquired abnormalities of the female reproductive system associated with infertility, promote structured evaluation with emphasis on associated findings to look for, and provide basic information on management.

Key Anatomic/Physiologic Issues and Imaging Findings/Techniques: In this exhibit, a multimodality review using CT, MRI, ultrasound, and fluoroscopy will demonstrate common and uncommon pathologies affecting the female reproductive tract. Images were collected from our health system. Conditions reviewed include but are not limited to pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, tubal irregularities, uterine fibroids, polyps (submucosal, intramural and subserosal), adenomyosis, leiomyomatosis, müllerian duct abnormalities, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and uterine synechiae.

Conclusion: With familiarity to imaging findings, these challenging conditions can be tackled with finesse.
