Deep infiltrating endometriosis is a frequent benign pathology that is found in 10-15% of fertile women and in 20% of infertile women. It has an impact on fertility but also on everyday life. In case of failure of medical treatment, surgical treatment can be offered to the patient. To provide adequate treatment and give the clearest information to patients, it seems essential to achieve optimal preoperative imaging. The aim of this work was to define for each compartment the surgeon’s expectations and the indications of iconographic work-ups before surgical management of pelvic endometriosis. We do not discuss technical examinations nor surgical indications and techniques.
