Aims: The purpose of this study was to classify complicated uterine movements obtained
by MRI scanner and investigate the relationship between uterine peristalsis and female infertility.
Methods: Uterine movements are classified into six fundamental movements by their motility form
and directions. Computer simulation of the uterine movements is performed.
Results: Comparison results between the real MRI images and the simulated images showed that
any five in our dataset uterine movement was successfully reproduced by a combination of these
six fundamental movements. The point and surface vibration model appropriately mimicked the
movements with the propagation velocity of 0.68 [mm/sec].
Conclusion: By analyzing six fundamental movements using data from 26 MRI scans, it was
found that two fundamental movements were identified as candidate factors for female infertility.
