FERREIRA, Adilson Cunha et al. Three-dimensional ultrasound in gynecology: uterine malformations. Radiol Bras [online]. 2007, vol.40, n.2, pp.131-136. ISSN 0100-3984.

Uterine malformations are unusual findings in the clinical practice of gynecology. Statistics regarding this abnormality are flawed, and there is a lack of standardization of the pertinent terminology, besides difficulty in the diagnosis. Starting in the 1980's, ultrasound became a procedure indispensable to the clinical practice in the field of tocogynecology, modifying concepts and procedures, and bringing an important contribution to this specialty. The advent of endocavitary transducers, amplitude and spectral color Doppler, as well as the increasing improvement in the imaging quality, has contributed to this progress. Over the last ten years, much has been studied, published and discussed about the role of the three-dimensional ultrasonography. The authors review the topic and emphasize the importance of this method as a diagnostic modality.

Keywords : Uterine malformations; Müllerian malformations; Three-dimensional ultrasonography.
