Real-time ultrasonography has entered place of work perform in obstetrics and gynecology. With expanding numbers of sonography platforms getting into the ambulatory place of work surroundings, obstetric sonography at a regimen point (level I) has principally been the unique region. fresh advancements in gynecologic real-time sonography have, despite the fact that, considerably enlarged the field of applicability of sonographic apparatus in an place of work environment.

Technical reviews have been hence limited to a minimal, with functional suggestion and photographic examples taking their position. lots of the sonographic real-time photos have been retrieved from the authors' personal records. even if, a few have been received during the generosity of neighbors and associates, for which we wish to increase acknowledgment and appreciation. related appreciation is prolonged to Dr. Haim Elrad and Dr. Jari Friberg, who additionally participated within the editorial approach; to Sheila Martin, who played beautifully as our editorial assistant, a such a lot tricky accountability; and to Hilary Evans, our editor at Plenum Publishing Corporation.
