Female Pelvis (Obstetrics/Gynecology)
Prior to the widespread utilization of ultrasound in the management of obstetric patients, there was little need for radiography in clinical obstetric care. The studies were limited primarily to radiographic pelvimetry and the more invasive procedure of aminography. Ultrasound currently occupies a very important role in the routine prenatal care of obstetric patients because of lack of ionizing radiation. The indications for obstetric ultrasound can be further subdivided into maternal and fetal indications.
