However, with the increased complexity of modern ultrasound and advent of duty-hour restrictions, a purely clinical training model is no longer viable.
With the advent of high-fidelity obstetric ultrasound simulators, a significant amount of training can occur in a non-clinical setting which allows learners to obtain significant skill prior to their first patient ultrasound encounter and obtain proficiency in a shorter period of time.
There is no sensation at all from the ultrasound waves.
A short history of the development of ultrasound in pregnancy can be found in the History pages.

Thus, it is important to develop rigorous and effective training curricula for obstetrics and gynecology residents and maternal–fetal medicine fellows.
Traditionally, this training has come almost entirely from exposure to ultrasound in the clinical setting.
It is quick, cheap, widely available, portable and does not involve ionizing radiation.
US can also be used to guide aspiration cytology or biopsy, as well as being a screening tool.
This review discusses the role of ultrasound in both benign and malignant gynaecology, early pregnancy and obstetrics.
