Abstract: Using a threshold of ≤5 mm, transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) can be used to identify those patients with postmenopausal bleeding who are at low risk for endometrial cancer, polyps, or atypical hyperplasia at a sensitivity comparable with that of endometrial biopsy and dilatation and curettage (D&C) (strength of recommendation: B, based on systematic reviews of consistent exploratory cohort studies.)
