Abstract Share this page

The purpose of this study was to review the embryology, classification, imaging features and treatment options of Müllerian duct anomalies. The three embryological phases will be described and the appearance of the seven classes of Müllerian duct anomalies will be illustrated using hysterosalpingography, ultrasound and MRI. This exhibit will also review the treatment options, including interventional therapy. The role of imaging is to help detect, classify and guide surgical management. At this time, MRI is the modality of choice because of its high accuracy in detecting and accurately characterising Müllerian duct anomalies. In conclusion, radiologists should be familiar with the imaging features of the seven classes of Müllerian duct anomalies, as the appropriate course of treatment relies upon the correct diagnosis and categorisation of each anomaly.
