Congenital uterine malformations are a various group of uterine anatomical abnormalities originated from development defects during fetal growth. These anomalies are found in about %1-3 of women, particularly those with infertility.
These malformations are associated with higher incidences of infertility, recurrent abortions, intrauterine fetal death, intrauterine growth retardation, premature delivery, fetal malposition, higher rate of caesarean section, retained placenta and gynecologic complications  such  as  obstructive   hematocolpos  & hematometra. However, manifestations and severity of the obstetric/gynecologic complications vary depending on each class. Moreover, treatment procedures are associated to the type of anomaly. Therefore, accurate diagnosis of uterine malformations and differentiation between various classes of them play a significant role in management of patients with congenital uterine anomalies.
Imaging is first-line evaluation method for patients

Pediatric neuroimaging is challenging due the rapid structural, metabolic and functional changes that occur in the developing brain.
In these session, we present some cases of common diseases of the pediatric central nervous system and discuss about their neuroimaging characteristics.
We have attempted to cover subjects that are encountered in everyday practice such as infections and inflammatory diseases of CNS, metabolic and toxic disorders, congenital malformations and Brain tumors.
Target audience includes radiology Residents, Radiologists           and       Neurologists.

suspected of having uterine anomaly. Several imaging modalities are used including 2D/3D ultrasound, 2D/3D hysterosonography, hysterosalpingography and MRI. Each modality has its own pros and cons. Current lecture provides useful knowledge on diagnosis and classification of uterine malformations and related complications by means of various imaging tools.
