The gen­i­tal ­tract is a com­plex ana­tom­ic ­region ­with over­lap­ping endo­crin­o­log­ic, ana­tom­ic, and func­tion­al fea­tures. Nuclear med­i­cine has val­ue in exam­in­ing func­tion­al ­aspects of repro­duc­tive and sex­u­al func­tion, rang­ing ­from tes­tic­u­lar or caver­no­sal per­fu­sion in the ­male, to fal­lo­pian ­tube trans­port in the ­female. Blood ­pool imag­ing has ­been help­ful in detect­ing sub­clin­i­cal varic­o­celes. Proper under­stand­ing of the ­role ­that ­these ­tests ­play is impor­tant for ­their suc­cess and cred­ibil­ity.
