This course is a study of the principles and practices of diagnostic medical sonography in gynecology. Normal female pelvic anatomy and physiology is presented and correlated with sectional and real-time sonographic imaging. Ovarian, uterine, adnexal, and associated pathologic conditions are discussed along with the common clinical and sonographic findings and imaging approaches associated with each condition. A strong emphasis is placed on the normal physiology of the menstrual cycle as well as physical, endocrine and clinical changes that occur in early pregnancy and in the postmenopausal patient.
