This document has been produced by the Pelvic Floor Imaging SIG to provide instruction for the acquisition of ultrasound images and 3D/4D data sets obtained by translabial imaging, which is currently the most widely used method for pelvic floor imaging. It is recognized that some practitioners use transvaginal and endo-anal techniques, to which this text does not apply.
