Ultrasound is playing an increasingly important role in gynecology. Applications of Gynecological ultrasound include general screening of women who are currently or have previously experienced menopause, and special diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as ovarian cyst aspirations and sonohysterograms (evaluation of the internal surface of the uterus). Gynecologic ultrasound provides visualization of the uterus and ovaries that may add important additional information not demonstrated using other imaging methods or with physical exam findings.

You will leave this course with a thorough understanding of this modality. Model demonstrations and hands-on scanning will present opportunities to have specific questions answered. The addition of Doppler to the study will allow inclusion of several pathological conditions not otherwise visualized.

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
• Successfully complete endovaginal ultrasound examinations following correct patient preparation and procedure protocols.
• Identify and display appropriate normal anatomy and orientation in the ultrasound field of view.
• Use an endovaginal transducer to perform the procedure.
• Demonstrate a working knowledge of the importance of quality assurance in ultrasound as described in AIUM guidelines.
• Understand variations in scanning protocols for demonstration in gynecological examinations.
• Demonstrate techniques for transducer cleaning and infection control.
• Be able to identify sources and research reference materials for additional information on gynecological ultrasound.
• Use Doppler ultrasound as an adjunct imaging method in a gynecological exam.
