Ultrasound has become an important tool for the management of subfertile women (Hacckelor, 1984). Demonstration of pelvic organs with accuracy and clear definition has been made possible with the introduction of high resolution sector ultrasound machines. Between June 1986 and February 1987, 103 women underwent a "menstrual phase" pelvic ultrasound scan. Uterine and adnexal abnormalities noticed on ultrasound scans were correlated with laparoscopic findings and biochemical results. Abnormal scan findings were present in 15 women and were confirmed in 13 of them at laparoscopy. Fifteen women with normal scans were found to have a pelvic pathology at laparoscopy, mostly of minor degree. Polycystic ovaries were diagnosed in 34 women on ultrasound imaging, 50% of whom had no biochemical evidence of the disease. An up-to-date presentation of results and their significance is discussed.
