Gynecological imaging encompasses a full range of gynecological technologies for detecting pathologies and conditions of the female reproductive organs. Gynecological conditions are usually diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and fluoroscopy. Medical imaging is also vital in infertility investigations, gynecological oncology and diagnosis of Mullerian duct anomalies. Gynecological ultrasonography allows the visualization of the ovaries, the uterus and the fallopian tubes, as well as the adnexa, bladder and the recto-uterine pouch. It also facilitates the diagnosis of gynecologic cancers, assessment of pelvic organs, diagnosis of acute appendicitis, diagnosis and management of endometriosis, leiomyoma, ovarian cysts and lesions, etc. MRI, X-ray CT, projectional radiography and nuclear medicine are employed for investigating pregnancy related complications and intercurrent diseases, or for routine prenatal care. This book discusses the fundamentals as well as modern approaches of gynecological imaging. It strives to provide a fair idea about the diverse gynecological imaging techniques and to help develop a better understanding of their diagnostic and therapeutic applications. A number of latest researches have been included to keep the readers up-to-date with the global concepts in this area of study.
