Learning objectives: The purpose of our educational exhibit is: - to illustrate normal anatomy and normal appearance of inguinal region; - to analyse the most common pathological conditions encountered in inguinal regions, showing their main imaging features depicted using Ultrasound (US), Computed Tomography (CT) and M[...]

Background: Anatomy Inguinal region comprises two main anatomical areas: the inguinal canal (IC) and the femoral triangle. The first, in adults, is an interfascial space measuring about 4 cm in length, which runs obliquely lateral to medial and from the depths to the surface. The anterior wall of the IC [...]

Findings and procedure details: 1. Hernias Hernia is the commonest pathological finding encountered in inguinal regions. It represents the protrusion of an organ through a defect in the muscle-aponeurotic layer. Hernias can be congenital or acquired diseases; based on their location, they may be classified as inguinal [...]

Conclusion: Knowledge of the anatomy is crucial to localize diseases occurring in the inguinal region. Radiologists should be able to identify the most frequent pathologies, in order to obtain a correct clinical and therapeutic approach.
