How helpful is a pelvic sonogram (ultrasound) in diagnosis of endometriosis?

In brief: Endo dx
Only of there is a mass, ultrsound is very non specific tool.
Laparoscopy continues to be the gold standard for the diagnosis of endometriosis.

In brief: Right now iffy
But getting better. Severe endometriosis (ovarian endometriomas for example) are easily identified on vaginal ultrasound.
Also MRI techniques are becoming better. Still nothing beats a history and physical exam and a trial of birth control pills to suppress menses and hopefully pain related to endometriosis.
