A syringe for use in a medical injection procedure in connection with connectors having a tapered fitting includes a syringe tip having a cooperating tapered fitting including a passage therein in fluid communication with an interior of the syringe. The syringe also includes a first connecting member having a radially inward threaded portion on an inner surface thereof adapted to connect to a first type of connector including a tapered fitting having at least one radially outward extending flange adapted to connect to the radially inward threaded portion of the first connecting member. In that regard, the first connecting member allows connection of the syringe to, for example, a standard luer fitting connector. The syringe further includes a second connecting member having at least one attachment member such as a radially outward extending flange adapted to connect to a second type of connector which includes a tapered fitting and a cooperating attachment member to engage the at least one attachment member of the second connecting member. The second connecting member allows connection of the syringe to improved tapered fitting connectors described herein.
