Background and Objective: This study was conducted to explore the value of the transvaginal ultrasonography of the cervical length measurement in comparison with Bishop Score in predicting the mode of delivery in the pregnancies in which labor is induced.Subjects and Methods: A total of 148 pregnancies at 37 to 42 weeks of gestation were included for induction. At first, the cervical length was measured by transvaginal ultrasonograghy and then was compared with Bishop Score to predict the mode of delivery. The cut off points was considered as 27 mm for the former and as score 4for the latter.Results: Mean preinduction cervical length was 24.5 ± 7.92 mm. Seventy-three percent of pregnancies were primipara whereas 27% were multipara. Eighty eight women delivered vaginally and 60 underwent cesarean section. In the study, the rate of cesarean in the primipara was more than multipara (P
