Because of its portability, speed, and ease of use, ultrasound (US) is the most commonly used imaging modality in the ER. This issue reviews the uses of US for obstetric and gynecologic presentations. Gastrointestinal, abdominal, and genitourinary applications of US in the ER are quite common. The use of US as guidance for ER procedures is also covered in this issue.
