It can not determine broken bones, at least normally.  This would be rare and only in a third world country with no x-ray machine.  They order a pelvic ultrasound if you are having abnormal periods or bleeding. Pain or unusually discomfort.  If they feel a mass during your pelvic exam.  Enlarged uterus, or pregnancy.  Cyst's on your ovary's.  Bloating is common reason, especially if you are older (over 40) because it is a symptom of ovarian cancer.
