Although videolaparoscopy followed by histopathological confirmation of the lesions is the “gold standard” for the diagnosis of endometriosis, this is an invasive diagnostic tool that may involve risks and complications. The clinical suspicion of endometriosis is first based on anamnesis and on the personal and family history of the patient, as well as on physical examination.

However, in view of the variety of signs and symptoms of the disease, clinical examination is insufficient for a definitive diagnosis, with the consequent need for complementary exams. This new book is a review of the currently available diagnostic approaches to endometriosis and of recent findings related to progress in the laboratory and imaging diagnosis and to the search for molecular markers related to the disease.
