In this lecture, the preoperative assessment of endometriosis, especially bowel and bladder endometriosis, is discussed. The preoperative work-up facilitates the surgical management and defines any multidisciplinary approach, if needed. Physical exam, ultrasonography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and other tests are outlined. Evidence-based medicine conclusions are also cited for each method of evaluation.
