The primary objective of the study was to compare the performance of the rectal water transvaginal ultrasonography (RWC-TVS) with and without bowel preparation (BP) in diagnosing rectosigmoid endometriosis. The secondary objectives were to compare the performance of the 2 exams in estimating infiltration of the mucosa, length of the largest rectosigmoid nodules, distance of the nodules from the anal verge, and presence of multifocal disease.

Abstract

The primary objective of the study was to compare the performance of the rectal water transvaginal ultrasonography (RWC-TVS) with and without bowel preparation (BP) in diagnosing rectosigmoid endometriosis. The secondary objectives were to compare the performance of the 2 exams in estimating infiltration of the mucosa, length of the largest rectosigmoid nodules, distance of the nodules from the anal verge, and presence of multifocal disease.
