Our workshop aims to give attendees an overview of the various possibilities for the use of ultrasound in the assessment of the female pelvic floor. We will present the basic methodology and clinical uses of pelvic floor sonography imaging which combines the advantages of the vaginal high-frequency probe for introitus sonography as well as the abdominal 2D/3D probe for perineal sonography. These techniques allow detailed assessment of potential trauma and dysfunction. We will put the emphasis on the pre- and post-therapeutic imaging when using transvaginal meshes and suburethral slings. We will perform live scanning including normal volunteers and patients with urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, before and after mesh surgery.
