What is a Clitogram®?

When a person is injured, has a medical condition, or is about to undergo surgery, doctors often take a “before” picture. This can be in the form of an ultrasound, x-ray, CT (“cat scan”), or MRI. This “before” picture gives a good idea of what things look like before any procedure is done. Imaging helps doctors and patients see whether the procedure helped, identify whether any accidental harm was done, and guide the next steps.

Unfortunately (and shockingly), this isn’t done for the clitoris! Despite the clitoris being an incredibly important organ, surgeons operate in the genital area without getting medical images of the clitoris before the surgery, during, or after.

Dr. Amir Marashi knew this wasn’t right, and that patients deserved better. He teamed up with Dr. Kimberly Lovie, a Harvard and Yale-trained physician and scientist, with a background in radiology. They worked together to create the first clitoral ultrasound method to be used in the clinic and operating room.

Dr. Marashi and Dr. Lovie offered the first Clitogram® training course in May 2024, and their goal is to set a new standard of care for vulvar surgery. They will train surgeons how to image the clitoris before, during, and after surgery, with the aim of safer surgery and harm reduction.
