Worrisome: A 27 year old female comments that her doctor used transvaginal ultrasound to "show endometriosis". I am not aware that ultrasound can be used to make this diagnosis. Perhaps a gynecologist can confirm or refute this diagnostic phenomenon. In my opinion, the diagnosis of endometriosis should only be made if tissue pathology confirms.

I have had more than one case wherein uterus pathology "found no endometriosis" even though "endometriosis" was the pre-op diagnosis.
