View Full Version : Measurement of pelvic floor muscles

10-04-2005, 12:21 PM
Dear All,

I post this query for a colleague. Her work involves measuring the movement
of the pelvic floor muscles (described as bowl or "V" shaped) through
ultrasound. She wants to measure central position lift and wonders if there
is a best method (e.g. software?) or practice to do this. Any input would
be appreciated.
