Dissection of male pelvis from a lateral approach
Prostatic utricle and ejaculatory duct in relation to seminal colliculus, left anterolateral view
The prostate has been sectioned in a sagittal plane, the cut passing slightly to the left of the midline posterior to the ejaculatory duct. The prostatic utricle (8) has been opened to demonstrate its size and relations to the seminal colliculus (15) onto the summit of which it opens, and to the ejaculatory duct (12) which courses parallel and slightly lateral to it to open on the side of the colliculus.
