Abstract

In contrast to the diagnosis of cervical carcinoma (Sect. 16.2), where ultrasound has not demonstrated significant value, sonography plays an important role in monitoring the progress of abortion or labor, evaluating cervical incompetence, selecting patients for surgical correction, and evaluating the correction (Ulbrich 1982; Zemlyn 1981; Bernstine etal. 1981; McGahan et al. 1981; Sarti et al. 1979).
