Hershey, Pennsylvania 17033


Purpose:

The investigators hypothesize that endometrial thickness will be a significant predictor of endometrial hyperplasia in a postmenopausal female population with metabolic syndrome: diabetes and/or insulin resistance, hypertension, and obesity.


Study summary:

The objective is to identify the utility of ultrasound as a screening test for endometrial hyperplasia and cancer in an "at risk" cohort. Endometrial carcinoma is an understudied cancer. This study will provide benefit regardless of its outcome, because it will be the first prospectively designed screening trial in an asymptomatic population.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Postmenopausal obese subjects, who have diabetes or a prediabetic state, or hypertension Exclusion Criteria: - Women who have had a hysterectomy
