Description: My research projects have a bias for Women Imaging in general, using plain radiography, mammography, hysterosalpingography (HSG), Ultrasonography, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).Using Mammography, I have been able to reveal that the awareness of women in this enviroment of mammography and mammographic screening is low and that they require more education about this form of imaging to enlighten them. I have also been able to delve into the causes of artifacts on mammography images and how they degrade the quality of images. The precautions taken to prevent these artifacts also have been highlighted. The various spectrums of findings in mammographic images were studied. Review of the various types of breast calcifications was undertaken. Microcalcifications were found to be a marker for malignant breast lesions. We also established that vascular calcification is not a predictor of cardiovascular disease.Findings in Hysteroslpingography, concerning structural defects and fallopian tube pathology were investigated and we established that tubal pathology was common in this environment. Also, we found that in resource limited settings, HSG remains a vital diagnostic tool in the assessment of infertile females.Using ultrasound also to monitor uterine fibroids pre and post uterine artery ligation transvaginally, we found that it is a viable option in the management of symptomatic uterine fibroids. There was significant reduction in the size of fibroids and marked reduction in bleeding.Ultrasound has been found to be useful in the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis and the workup of infertile females, fetal birth weight estimation, amniotic fluid index, fetal congenital anomalies and aortic aneurysm. Magnetic Resonance imaging was also found to be very useful in the diagnosis of ambiguous genitalia.

Sonourethrography versus Retrograde urethrography findings in assessment of the anterior urethral strictures in a tertiary institution in Lagos Nigeria.
Here, we are trying to compare the efficacy of sonourethrography with retrograde urethrography in assessment of anterior urethral strictures.
