Explore CT scan
The CT is a powerful imaging method that enables the clinicians to examine the urinary and reproductive organs in a non-invasive way. When it comes to the urinary and female reproductive organs, the CT is used to assess the:
- Urinary tract: kidneys, ureters and bladder
- Reproductive organs (female): uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, vagina and their supporting structures
Being able to recognize the pathologies such as kidney stones, infections and other structural issues, it is necessary to first know how these organs appear in a healthy person, i.e. their normal CT anatomy.
Browse through these 6 CT slices and try to assess the anatomy of the urinary and female reproductive systems.
