Fimbriae of a fallopian tube, SEM C016 / 9049

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.

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, the delicate folds at the entrance of a fallopian tube. Colored in stunning detail using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), this image reveals their crucial role in guiding a newly-released ovum into the tube itself. Each fallopian tube connects one ovary to the uterus, serving as a pathway for ova to travel towards potential fertilization. The magnified view allows us to appreciate these fringe-like structures that play an essential part in reproduction. As ova journey down these tubes, they may encounter sperm along the way, leading to fertilization and subsequent implantation into the uterine wall, marking the beginning of pregnancy. However, if no fertilization occurs during this voyage, they will be expelled from the body during menstruation. Photographed against a pristine white background, this SEM print by Steve Gschmeissner from Science Photo Library offers an extraordinary glimpse into our biological makeup. The level of detail captured here highlights not only their anatomical significance but also showcases nature's remarkable design within our female reproductive system. Whether used for educational purposes or simply admired for its aesthetic appeal, this photograph serves as a reminder of both our complexity as living organisms and our capacity for creation and new life.
