An OB sonogram is one of the more well-known uses of sonography; examining the fetus of a pregnant woman. Ultrasound scan is currently considered to be a safe, non-invasive, accurate and cost-effective investigation of the fetus. It has progressively become an indispensable obstetric tool and plays an important role in the care of every pregnant woman. This examination has many different indications, such as: to evaluate the position of the fetus, diagnose congenital abnormalities, and to determine if there are multiple pregnancies. OB ultrasound can be used in the early diagnosis and confirmation of pregnancy, assess gestational age, size and growth in the fetus.

A GYN sonogram evaluates organs found within the female pelvic region. A GYN sonogram can help identify ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, as well as ovarian and uterine masses. A pelvic sonogram can be done trans-abdominal and trans-vaginal/endovaginal. Trans-vaginal ultrasound is performed very much like a gynecological exam and involves the insertion of the transducer into the vagina after the patient empties their bladder. A trans-vaginal ultrasound is usually performed to view the endometrium or lining of the uterus, including its thickness, and ovaries. Trans-vaginal ultrasound also affords a good way to evaluate the muscular walls of the uterus, called the myometrium.
