Ovaries and uterus. Laparoscope (endoscope) view inside a woman's abdomen showing healthy ovaries, fallopian tube and uterus. The ovaries are visible as white spheres (at top and bottom); a fallopian tube (pink tissue, top left) is seen associated with the upper ovary; at centre left is the uterus appearing a pale orange colour. An egg is released at monthly intervals from the ovaries, and it reaches the uterus through one of two fallopian tubes. The hollow muscular uterus is the womb of pregnancy. A laparoscope is a steel instrument with optical fibres, which allows internal body organs to be viewed.
