Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Elongated means long or longer than normal, elongated cervical canal means that the cervix was longer than normal, irregular margins means that the lining or surface had areas that were different from other parts.

Left fallopian tube is also longer than expected, dilatation means wider than normal. This means this area is longer and wider than normal however they noted that there was spillage of contrast which means there was no obvious obstruction.

Spillage means that the dye was seen to leave through the tubes, the tube did not appear blocked.

I hope this helps
