Abstract

Pelvic pain is a frequent complaint in women presenting to the emergency room or to a physician's office, and ultrasound should be considered the initial imaging modality of choice in the evaluation of women with pelvic pain. This article reviews the ultrasound imaging technique and provides a thorough differential of gynecologic and nongynecologic causes of both acute and chronic pelvic pain.
