Transvaginal ultrasonography is finding increasing clinical application in obstetrics as well as in gynaecology. It is useful in the evaluation of patients with mid-trimester miscarriage and the prediction and diagnosis of pre-term labour. Ultrasound may also have a place in cervical assessment prior to induction of labour. Ultrasound practitioners need to acquire and maintain skills to reproducibly assess cervical parameters to inform the clinical decision-making process.
