Abstract

Endometriosis is a disease that is common among reproductive-aged females and can present itself through symptoms such as pelvic pain and infertility. The current process of diagnosing this disease involves laparoscopy, an invasive surgical procedure. This method of diagnosis have been proven to be suboptimal and suggests the need for reevaluation. The misdiagnosis and delays in diagnosis of endometriosis have become a public health crisis and many authors propose alternative methods of clinical, noninvasive diagnostic techniques.
