Acute-onset pelvic pain is an extremely common symptom in premenopausal women presenting to the emergency department. After excluding pregnancy in reproductive-age women, ultrasonography plays a major role in the prompt and accurate diagnosis of adnexal causes of acute pelvic pain, such as hemorrhagic ovarian cysts, endometriosis, ovarian torsion, and tubo-ovarian abscess. Its availability, relatively low cost, and lack of ionizing radiation make ultrasonography an ideal imaging modality in women of reproductive age...

OBJECTIVES: We compared emergency physician-performed pelvic ultrasonography (EPPU) with radiology department-performed pelvic ultrasonography (RPPU) in emergency department (ED) female patients requiring pelvic ultrasonography and their outcomes in relation to ED length of stay, ED readmission, and alternative diagnosis, within a 14-day follow-up period. METHODS: This was a prospective, observational study of female patients of reproductive age who required either an EPPU or RPPU for their ED evaluation...

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.

PURPOSE: Ovarian torsion (OT) is a true surgical emergency that requires prompt diagnosis and therapy. There are conflicting reports on the accuracy of different imaging modalities for OT. In this study, we performed a meta-analysis of all the published studies on B-mode ultrasound (US, morphological criteria), Doppler US (DUS, flow criteria), and computed tomography (CT) for the diagnosis of OT. Methods: The medical literature from 1987 to 2013 was searched for studies that evaluated US, DUS, CT, or combination of these techniques to diagnose OT in children using PubMed/MEDLINE database...

A 12-year-old girl presented to the pediatric emergency department with a history of difficulty voiding and was found to have a firm, tender suprapubic mass on examination. Transabdominal emergency point-of-care ultrasound was used at the bedside to diagnose hematocolpometra due to an imperforate hymen. The diagnosis was confirmed by a comprehensive abdominal ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in the radiology suite. The patient was discharged on oral contraceptive medication and scheduled for an outpatient surgical hymenectomy following consultation with the gynecology service...

A 35-day-old female infant presents to the pediatric emergency department with increased crying and persistent fullness in the right groin. On examination, the infant was noted to have increased fullness and a nonreducible mass in the right mons pubis. Point-of-care ultrasound was used to help diagnose an incarcerated ovary, allowing for expedited care while waiting for confirmatory imaging. The infant underwent surgery with salvage of the ovary.
