AB  - OBJECTIVE: To assess three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound combined with power
      Doppler (PD) for the differential diagnosis of endometrial lesions among
      infertile women. METHODS: A prospective study carried out at a reproductive
      medicine center in Luoyang, China, between January and December 2015. The
      inclusion criteria were asymptomatic infertility with normal endometrium or
      specific endometrial lesions. Participants were subdivided by whether they had
      normal endometrium (group 1, n=357), or endometrial lesions including polyps,
      hyperplasia, intrauterine adhesions, or endometritis (group 2, n=99). 3D PD and
      hysteroscopy were performed in the follicular phase. Endometrial thickness,
      volume, vascularization index (VI), flow index (FI), and vascularization flow
      index (VFI), and subendometrial VI, FI, and VFI were calculated. Endometrial
      lesions were confirmed by pathologic analysis. RESULTS: The overall prevalence of
      endometrial lesions was 99/456 (21.3%). Endometrial thickness and volume were
      significantly larger in group 2 than in group 1 (9.96 +/- 3.24 vs 8.15 +/- 2.50
      mm and 3.70 +/- 2.54 vs 2.42 +/- 1.64 cm(3) , respectively; both P<0.001).
      Endometrial thickness and volume were larger among women with endometrial polyps 
      and hyperplasia; endometrial VI, FI, and VFI were lower among women with
      intrauterine adhesions. CONCLUSION: Three-dimensional PD has value for the
      differential diagnosis of endometrial lesions among infertile women. CLINICAL
      TRIAL REGISTRATION: The trial is registered in the Chinese Clinical Trial
      Registry as ChiCTR1800015799.
