Ultrasound has changed gynaecological practice and continues to do so. One of the earliest applications of abdominal scanning in gynaecology was for monitoring follicular development during fertility treatment with clomiphene citrate or gonadotrophins in the 1960s and 1970s. Subsequently, it was natural that with the introduction of in vitro fertilization, abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound played a key role in the development of oocyte retrieval techniques. These were truly the first interventional ultrasound-guided ambulatory procedures in gynaecology. In this chapter, the reader will be introduced to the roles that the various ultrasound modalities play in our current daily practice, and how they have changed the management of numerous gynaecological conditions in both diagnostic and therapeutic contexts. We will also outline the recent developments and the ‘hot’ research topics in this field.
