Revision History


Accreditation in gynecological ultrasound requires two complete female pelvis exams from two different patients. At least one exam of the two must include a transvaginal study.

 

DO NOT submit a female pelvic study with an intrauterine device (IUD).

For transvaginal submissions, all requirements must be imaged transvaginally. Only transvaginal images will be reviewed.

Transabdominal and transvaginal exams from 1 patient are considered 1 complete female pelvis exam, and both exams should be submitted as one.
