A review of 200 ultrasonic examinations done on women during early pregnancy, whose final pregnancy outcome was known. This study was undertaken to assess the value of the procedure. Ultrasound was found to be diagnostic in 97.5% of cases, with the primary indication of its use being the assessment of pregnancy wellbeing . Multiple gestation, hydatidiform mole, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic tumours associated with pregnancy were also readily diagnosed in their early stages, and the gestational age was correctly determined when dates were uncertain.
