Equipment. The best images of the cervix and caudal uterus in these species were obtained with hand-held 5.0 MHz linear array transducers for sagittal images, and 3.5 (90?) MHz convex transducers for cross-sectional images. For the African species, the 5.0 MHz linear-array transducer was attached to an extension to enable imaging of the ovaries or ovarian area; however, for the R.unicornis, the 5.0 (48?) MHz convex transducer, taped to an extension, imaged the left ovary that was cranial to the probe.
