Ultrasound of the adolescent female pelvis is the imaging method of choice for most medical problems presenting with symptoms and signs referable to this area. Recognizing the transition from child to mature female and its manifestations are crucial in directing the workup and interpreting the sonographic findings. A description of the normal anatomy and physiology of the pelvic organs is followed by a discussion of the clinical and imaging findings in primary and secondary amenorrhea, pelvic pain, and pelvic masses.
