Abstract

Ultrasound (US) is very useful in diagnosing causes of infertility. Pelvic masses, mullerian anomalies, ovarian reserve, and tubal patency can all be assessed using ultrasonographic techniques. US has also proven to be a very useful aid in managing infertility treatments. In this chapter, we review the uses of US in monitoring follicular development, assessing the endometrium during treatment, and as an aid to embryo transfer during in vitro fertilization.
