A case study of air in the vagina at screening CT colonography including incidental visualisation of a rectovaginal fistula
Keywords:vaginal flatus, queefing, yoga, prolonged labour
This paper describes visualisation of air in the vagina at computer tomographic colonography (CTC). Images of normal air in theÂ vagina, as well as demonstration of a rectovaginal fistula, seen at screening CTC are presented. A brief discussion is presented on the role of diagnostic imaging modalities to visualise the pelvic region in female patients. Pathological conditions may cause air in the vagina. It is therefore important to carefully check the vagina when interpreting imaging examinations.
