Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology Journal articles
The following endometriosis articles have been made free access for this month. Support the work of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (UOG), the leading peer reviewed journal in its field by becoming an ISUOG member today.
New Randomized Controlled Trial finding that, in women with deep infiltrating endometriosis, pelvic floor physiotherapy seems to be effective in improving superficial dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain and pelvic floor muscle relaxation. Read the article on pelvic floor physiotherapy for deep infiltrating endometriosis.
New systematic review finding that TVS is marginally superior for detection of rectosigmoid deep endometriosis than MRI and should be used as the first-line diagnostic tool for suspected deep endometriosis. Read the article on the optimal imaging modality for the detection of rectosigmoid deep endometriosis.
When performed before TVS, bowel preparation aids detection and enables more precise description of rectosigmoid nodules of deep infiltrating endometriosis in patients with suspected endometriosis. Read the article analyzing the effect of bowel preparation prior to transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) examination on description of rectosigmoid nodules of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE).
Visual Encyclopedia (VISUOG)
We have also made our VISUOG chapter on Endometriomas open access for the entire month. View the chapter for images, epidemiology, ultrasound characteristics, video clips, clinical symptoms, prognosis and more.
VISUOG is our Visual Encyclopedia and aims to provide medical professionals with up-to-date information on the clinical use of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology. VISUOG chapters are normally free to access for ISUOG members, with 115 chapters available to read. Become an ISUOG member today.
