Fallopian tube. Coloured scanning electron micro- graph (SEM) of the lining of a fallopian tube of a 48 year old post-menopausal woman. The mucosa (lining, blue) is seen at right. Some of the epithelium has been removed at left to reveal the underlying layers of collagen fibres (yellow). The fallopian tubes, or oviducts, are the muscular tubes through which ova (eggs) pass from the ovaries to the uterus. Magnification: x1100 at 6x7cm size.
