Pelvic ultrasound is by far the most common way to evaluate the endometrium.
Mri can also evaluate the endometrium but is a much more involved and expensive test.

In brief: Ultrasound.
Transvaginal ultrasound to evaluate the endometrial thickness in women with postmenopausal bleeding is increasingly used to detect endometrial cancer.
Hysteroscopy can be used to directly visualize the uterine cavity, including tumors, and makes possible cell samples with minimal damage to the endometrium.
