Uterus transplantation (UTx) is a novel procedure being studied as a treatment of absolute uterine factor infertility. Imaging plays an important role throughout the life cycle of a uterus transplant. In this review, we will first describe the surgical technique of UTx. The article will then focus on the importance of imaging in the evaluation of potential recipients and donors and during the immediate post-surgical time course as graft viability is established. Imaging as part of including in vitro fertilization, pregnancy, and complications will also be discussed.
