    Ultrasonography is becoming a widely accepted ancillary tool in the diagnosis of hydatidiform mole. The limitations of B-mode scanning in the diagnosis of molar pregnancy are discussed. A new technic of scanning (Greatone) is described which can be quite helpful in overcoming these limitations; it eliminates false-positive diagnoses and permits rapid institution of appropriate therapy.
