Ultrasound is considered the first-line imaging modality in the evaluation of the fallopian tubes. This chapter reviews both the physiologic and pathologic sonographic findings of the fallopian tubes and how to recognize characteristic entities. Specifically, it describes how to use ultrasound techniques to distinguish between pathologic processes including chronic versus acute pelvic inflammatory disease, as well as infertility, torsion, and malignancy. It also describes how to employ modern ultrasound techniques, such as color Doppler, three-dimensional imaging, and salpingocentesis in clinical practice.
