2. Borderline ventriculomegaly – What are the other tests and possible outcomes?
3. Mild pyelectasis – the new guidelines.
4. Single umbilical artery – how worrisome is this?
5. Nuchal cord – to call or not to call.
6. Low-lying placenta at survey – How to follow up and when.
7. Umbilical vein varix – Is this a real problem?
8. Chorionic bump in first trimester – how significant is the risk of MAB?

How to Use Ultrasound to Evaluate the Patient Who Presents with Pelvic Pain

Beryl R. Benacerraf, MD

During this presentation, learners will be able to:

1. Learn the different causes of pelvic pain, how to recognize them sonographically, and how getting a history from the patient during the scan can help narrow down the differential diagnosis.
2. Learn how to look for causes of pelvic pain when the standard pelvic ultrasound is normal, by going beyond what is considered a routine pelvic scan.
3. Demonstrate the benefit of ultrasound over other forms of imaging for detecting endometriosis (sometimes subtle) in patients presenting with pelvic pain. Even when the uterus and ovaries are normal, the patient may still have extensive and symptomatic endometriosis which is detectable accurately sonographically.
