Although CT is not the first choice for abdominal imaging of pregnant patients, it can be indicated for pregnant patients with emergent life-threatening conditions. It is prudent in these cases for the radiologist to be familiar with the normal appearance of the pregnant uterus on CT and to evaluate the female pelvis for potential maternal and fetal abnormalities. We aim to provide examples of the normal CT appearance of the female pelvis related to different gestational ages and to demonstrate variant and abnormal conditions of pregnancy which may be identified by CT.
