Ultrasound evaluation of uterine and ovarian size from birth to puberty

Pediatr Radiol. 1994;24(1):11-3. doi: 10.1007/BF02017650.


Sonographic measurement of uterine and ovarian volume was performed in 178 healthy girls ranging in age from newborn to 14 years. High values were measured during the neonatal age and puberty, in contrast to those in subjects between 1 month and 7 years of age. We conclude that age and pubertal stage are important parameters in correctly interpreting the size of the uterus and ovaries in childhood.
