Ultrasound has become essential in the diagnosis and management of the infertile female. Transvaginal ultrasonography provides a detailed examination of the uterus and ovaries. Evaluation of the infertile female has become increasingly more detailed in recent years because of technologic advancements as vaginal ultrasonography is the first step in assessment of pelvic infertile female.
