Abstract

Chronic pelvic pain can result from various intra- and extra-pelvic etiologies. Although patient history and physical examination may narrow the differential diagnosis, frequently, the different etiologies have overlapping presentations. Imaging examinations such as US and/or MR imaging may help delineate the cause of pain, particularly when related to intra-pelvic organs, pelvic floor dysfunction or prolapse, synthetic material such as pelvic mesh or slings, and in some cases of neuropathic pain. Etiologies of neuropathic pain can also be assessed with non-imaging tests such as nerve conduction studies, electromyography, and testing of sacral reflexes.
