Welcome from the Chair

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent disease that is characterized by the presence of endometriotic tissue outside the uterine cavity. It causes pain symptoms (such as dysmenorrhea, deep dyspareunia, and chronic pelvic pain) and infertility. The gynecological examination may allow us to suspect the presence of this disease; however, it does not allow us to provide a diagnosis.

This webinar aims to provide an update on using transvaginal ultrasonography to diagnose endometriosis. Transvaginal ultrasonography is currently the first-line investigation for the diagnosis of endometriosis. Compared with other imaging techniques, transvaginal ultrasonography has the advantage of having good diagnostic performance. It is frequently performed by gynecologists who usually manage patients for whom there is a suspicion of endometriosis, and it is cheap. Furthermore, nowadays, standardized protocols are available for assessing the pelvis of patients with a suspicion of endometriosis using ultrasound.

I invite those interested in gynecological ultrasonography to participate in this webinar!
