The authors report on their experiences with ultrasonic localization of several types of IUDs. The investigations were carried out with the ultrasonic equipment B scanning Vidoson S 635 (Siemens). The characteristics of the echosonic pictures of 6 IUDs (Szontagh IUD, Lippes Loop, Gravi gard, Alza T, Copper T, Antigon) were studied. It could be stated that the IUDs can be identified well by ultrasonics. In cases of IUD in situ and early pregnancy the amnion and the IUD can be localized exactly.
