The presence of an incomplete septum in an anechoic mass with smooth tubular shape and poor vascularization facilitates discrimination between hydrosalpinx and other adnexal masses. Additionally, a history of previous abdominal operations or infections further supports the diagnosis of hydrosalpinx (Domali E. et al, 2007).

Note the incomplete septum as well as the tubular appearance.
