Pelvic neoplasms can arise from the genitourinary tract, gonads, soft tissues, or bone. The role of imaging is to confirm the presence of tumor, determine the site of origin, delineate the extent for staging and treatment planning, and serve as a baseline for monitoring response to therapy. MR imaging is well suited for the characterization and staging of pediatric pelvic tumors. This article reviews the imaging findings and staging evaluation of the common nongynecologic neoplasms in children. Prostatic, bladder, gonadal, and sacrococcygeal tumors are discussed. Gynecologic tumors are discussed elsewhere in this issue.
