Are you talking about the butt dimple (sacral dimple)? My son has one and we had an ultrasound done last week. The ped said that they can indicate a cord that is tethered to the skin, and is easier to look at in a newborn with an ultrasound, where if you waited more than 3 months would require an MRI with anesthesia. My son's was normal on the ultrasound too.

Is the sacral dimple what you're referring to? That's the only thing I'm aware of that an ultrasound would be recommended for.
