Ultrasound, chiefly transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS), is the preferred imaging modality for assessing female pelvic anatomy, making it an important gynaecological investigation.

TVUS is unique in that it acts not only as an imaging modality but as a dynamic examination, and as such many findings cannot be determined from stored static images alone. This means, more than for other imaging modalities, that the written report is crucial. In addition, most UK gynaecologists are not experienced sonographers and rely heavily on ultrasound reports to make clinical decisions. This makes optimisation of the report even more important.
