Normal prepubertal uterus.

A. A sagittal T2-weighted image of an 11-month-old girl shows the normal tubular morphology of the uterus (arrows). There is a thin endometrial stripe central to the lower signal myometrium. B. The uterus (arrow) appears as an oval structure between the bladder and rectum on this axial image.

5. Unicornuate uterus

Figure 53-5

Unicornuate uterus.

A vaginogram of an infant opacifies a right-sided uterine horn (arrow) and a normal vagina. Because this technique does not define the uterine soft tissue anatomy, the differential diagnosis includes unicornuate uterus and uterus didelphys with a vaginal septum.

6. Uterus didelphys and longitudinal vaginal septum

Figure 53-6

Uterus didelphys and longitudinal vaginal septum.

A vaginogram of an infant opacifies 2 hemivaginas (arrows) separated by a longitudinal septum. Contrast did not pass into the uterine cavities. There is also contrast in the colon from a preceding colon study.

7. Uterus didelphys

Figure 53-7

Uterus didelphys.

A transverse sonographic image of a 1-day-old infant shows 2 distinct uterine horns (arrows). The endometrial layers form slightly hyperechoic rings surrounding the hypoechoic uterine cavities.
