The growing ubiquity, well-established safety, and cost-effectiveness of ultrasound imaging have determined its role in the diagnosis of urogenital infectious diseases It is imperative that all practitioners involved in the diagnostics of urogenital diseases understand the ultrasonographic manifestations of these diseases, as early diagnosis and treatment are the cornerstones of avoidance of long-term morbidity and mortality If the strengths and limitations of ultrasonography are understood properly, a practitioner will be able to achieve the quickest and safest diagnosis with the minimal amount of further invasive imaging The advent of new ultrasonographic techniques may allow it to serve a more central role in the diagnosis and characterization of urogenital infections.
