Abstract

MR imaging is frequently used to assess pediatric genital disorders. The ability to obtain 3-dimensional sequences allowing for multiplanar reformations and sequences designed to minimize motion artifact have aided in the imaging evaluation in the pediatric population. For certain genital disorders, such as Müllerian duct anomalies, MR imaging has become the standard imaging technique. This article discusses up-to-date MR imaging techniques and the interpretation of findings including normal anatomy, as well as congenital and acquired genital disorders seen in the pediatric population.
