Synopsis: 
Accurate prediction of ovulation is important in the management of female infertility. Sonographic observation of complete disappearance of a dominant follicle and reduction in follicular size of surrogate follicles after follicular rupture appeared to be more reliable predictors of imminent ovulation than merely measuring follicular dimensions.
