Endometriosis is a common condition with significant morbidity, including pain and subfertility, which is often subject to a delay in diagnosis. Ultrasound has been successfully utilized, mostly outside North America, to preoperatively stage deep endometriosis, but in these international settings, imaging is typically performed solely by expert radiologists and gynecologists. We outline a method for detailed sonographic survey of the lower abdomen and pelvis to ensure optimum detection and communication of disease extent that is geared to radiologists practicing ultrasound in the United States, with the use of diagnostic medical sonographers.
