Endometriosis is a key topic at the ISUOG World Congress 2024.

Over the last decade, endometriosis awareness has highly improved among physicians and patients. Consequently, referrals for alleged endometriosis have dramatically increased. The challenge now is to differentiate pain solely due to deep endometriosis from more complex chronic pain problems. The former may benefit from surgical resection, while the latter warrants a holistic – often non-surgical - multidisciplinary approach. Ultrasound should not only provide precise preoperative mapping in cases of deep endometriosis but also a better understanding of complex pain syndromes.
