Pelvic Ultrasonography

Part of the Clinical Perspective in Obstetrics and Gynecology book series (CPOG)


The diagnosis and management of female pelvic abnormalities in children and adolescents are among the most difficult problems in gynecology. The patient’ family often is upset about the possibility of reproductive tract abnormalities, and the patient is apprehensive about the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that may be used. Indeed, these procedures may have the potential to cause serious psychologic trauma.
