Chapter 20 covers the complete pelvic floor ultrasound, a novel and useful extension of the physical examination which allows the colorectal surgeon to assess the structure and function of the female pelvic floor in addition to the surface anatomy. The complete sequence of scans can be carried out in the clinic setting by the colorectal surgeon and provides additional information to confirm and document the physical findings. The 3D datasets and dynamic video clips can be reviewed after the physical examination and can be visualised at the pelvic floor multidisciplinary team meeting.
