Abstract

Transperineal US has increased in use in the last decade. It is helpful in the evaluation of distal genitourinary structures, the rectum and overlying soft tissues. When used in conjunction with transabdominal US, transperineal US can further delineate anatomy and assess abnormalities that affect the lower pelvis. This paper describes optimal technique and common indications for transperineal US in children with examples of congenital and acquired lesions in pediatric patients.
