    Abstract: Purpose. The aim of this study was to estimate how ultrasonographic evaluation of endometrium and histopathological findings are correlated in a group of premenopausal and postmenopausal women. Material and Methods. I have studied 106 premenopausal and postmenopausal women who underwent endometrial biopsy based on results of transvaginal ultrasonography. Results. Mean age of patients was 52.29±8.14 years. Postmenopausal status <10 years was common in 20 patients (18.86%), postmenopausal status >10 years was common in 21 patients (19.81%), and premenopausal status in 65 patients (61.32%). Transvaginal sonography reported EH in 97 cases (91.50%) and EH was confirmed by pathology in 88 cases (83.01%). Conclusion. Endometrial thickness was correlated with histopathological diagnosis much better in postmenopausal women.
