Introduction: Several studies have reported a correlation between antral follicle count (AFC) by 2D modality and anti-Mullerian hormone. However, few studies have reported a comparison between 2D modality and 3D SonoAVC AFC measurements. Objective: To compare the total AFC using 3D SonoAVC with 2D modality. Materials and Methods: We included 50 infertile women presenting to a private fertility clinic between January and May 2018. AFC was measured on day 2 or 3 of menses. The scanning was performed by transvaginal ultrasound using 2D and 3D technology. Results: Statistical analysis demonstrated that both modalities were equivalent. Although AFC was higher using 3D SonoAVC as compared to 2D modality (mean difference of three follicles), the difference was not found to be statistically significant (P = 0.184). Conclusion: SonoAVC is a promising tool for AFC measurement in infertile women and is comparable to 2D AFC measurement. Modification of technology and post-processing can further improve the accuracy.
