Although our institutions' imaging with MRI and TVUS is highly accurate, we additionally recommend the use of colonoscopy (with directed biopsies if appropriate) to evaluate patients who present with rectal bleeding, large endometriotic rectal nodules, or have a family history of bowel cancer.
Similarly, a single-arm prospective study in the United States looking at a two-stage screening strategy using ROCA and TVUS showed comparable specificity and positive predictive values to those reported on UKCTOCS (Cancer 2013;119:3454-61).

Using a threshold of [less than or equal to] 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.)
