The sonographic diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
is a challenge for the sonographer. Sonographic diagnosis is
possible when tube enlarges and liquid accumulates inside the
fallopian tube, a sign that can be detected with vaginal probes.
As the disease progresses, more complex images are found
depending on the enlarging of the adnexa and the accumulation
of necrotic material. Sonography allows a sensitive diagnostic
suspicion in the case of women with clinical and epidemiologic
criteria for PID.
