Fimbriae of a fallopian tube, SEM C016 / 9046

Fimbriae of a fallopian tube, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Fimbriae are the folds at the opening (ostium) of a fallopian tube, next to an ovary. They help to guide a newly-released ovum (egg cell) into the tube itself. One fallopian tube runs from each ovary into the uterus (womb). Ova travel down the tubes into the uterus. If they encounter sperm on the way they may be fertilised, in which case they implant into the uterus wall and pregnancy begins. If not, they are expelled from the body in the next menstrual period. Magnification: x10 when printed 10cm wide

Colored Electron Microscope Fallopian Tube Female Reproductive System Fimbria Fimbriae Fringe Ostium Oviduct Reproduction Surface Tissue Uterine

This print showcases the intricate beauty of the fimbriae, folds found at the entrance of a fallopian tube. Colored in stunning detail using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), this image reveals the delicate surface structure of these vital components of the female reproductive system. The fimbriae play a crucial role in guiding newly-released egg cells into the fallopian tube, situated adjacent to an ovary. As one fallopian tube connects each ovary to the uterus, ova travel down these tubes towards their destination. If they encounter sperm during this journey, fertilization may occur as they make their way towards implantation within the uterine wall. With a black background enhancing its visual impact, this photograph provides us with a glimpse into an often unseen world within our bodies. The magnification level of x10 when printed 10cm wide allows for detailed examination and appreciation of this biological marvel. Steve Gschmeissner's expertise in capturing scientific images is evident through his ability to showcase both anatomical structures and artistic appeal simultaneously. This particular print from Science Photo Library serves as a reminder that even on such microscopic scales, nature's design can be awe-inspiring and beautiful.
