Transrectal sonography was used for intraoperative guidance in intrauterine tandem placement for intracavitary radiation therapy and in dilation and curettage procedures. The authors describe the method and three representative cases in which it was applied. It is concluded that the technique may prevent complications such as uterine perforation or bladder injury in tandem placement, and that it can facilitate dilation and curettage in complicated cases.
