Uterine Fundus

What Is

Uterine Fundus?

The uterine fundus is the dome-shaped uppermost, rounded part of the uterus. The shape and competency of the uterine fundus are assessed when a woman is unable to conceive because uterine fibroids can interfere with the implantation of the embryo within the uterus.

The fundal height is also used to determine the progression of pregnancy.
