The content highlights the detailed anatomical information through MR images. The book presents typical MRI examples for each category of different classes and subclasses of uterine anomalies, illustrated with a number of cases from the author’s practice; supplies high number of quality images with relevant schematic drawings facilitating the understanding of the imaging findings, focusing on an actual and concrete nomenclature of the gynecology and reproductive medicine; includes a brief recap of the embryology of the female genital tract, especially for uterine origin and a short overview of the clinical presentation, genetic aspects, reproductive consequences, therapy and association with other "non-Mullerian" congenital anomalies.“Congenital uterine anomalies” could serve as a textbook guide and a practice-oriented desk reference for residents, radiologists, obstetricians, gynecologists and everyone dealing with interpretation of clinical MR of the female pelvis.
