Imaging for seminal tracts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Because of the close embryologic relationship of the seminal vesicle and the vas deferens with the urinary system, the seminal tract is a site where associated congenital anomalies are often found in men with congenital urinary tract anomalies. In addition, the seminal tract plays an important role in carrying out male reproductive function. This chapter reviews the normal anatomy of the seminal tract including the seminal vesicle, vas deferens, and ejaculatory duct, and discusses ultrasonographic (US), computed tomographic (CT), and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features of the spectrum of seminal tract diseases, which is classified into five categories: congenital anomalies, inflammations, infertility related conditions, tumors, and miscellaneous conditions.
