Ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound waves to generate images of body structures. It is used as an adjunct in the diagnosis of acute and chronic obstetric and gynecologic conditions. Beginning in the 1990s, point-of-care ultrasonography brought to the bedside real-time correlation of a patient’s presenting signs and symptoms. It is the imaging technique of choice for pregnant women and a convenient and efficient way to evaluate the pelvis of nonpregnant gynecologic patients. For OB/GYN hospitalists, ultrasonography is used daily and is an essential diagnostic tool.
