In brief: Yes

Mainly if there is a complex cyst in the ovaries that could help prepare the plan for surgery.
A negative ultrasound does not exclude the disease.

In brief: Maybe

Ultrasound can diagnose endometriosis only rarely.
Usually the implants are too small to show up. Sometimes, a particular implant is either big enough or located in a spot that is well seen on the scan.
