Endometrial microcalcifications can arise from a vast range pathologies but are usually of benign in aetiology.
They have an increased incidence with older age, postmenopausal state, atrophic endometrium, and endometrial polyps.
They are typically seen as micro-echogenic foci within the endometrium.
