Endometrial thickness is 12 mm. Multiple cystic spaces are noted within. Solid areas are echogenic. Margins of endometrial lining was well-defined.
No significant flow signals seen.
Myometrium does not show focal lesion.
Either of ovaries could not be localized.
In a symptomatic (with bleeding per vaginum) post menopausal patient, endometrial thickness more than 5 mm is an abnormal finding. However, a thickened endometrium is a non-specific finding and needs histopathology.

D&C Histopathology – Focal cystic hyperplasia. No atypical hyperplasia or malignancy.
6 mths follow up was done and patient was asymptomatic till that time.
Endometrial thickness of 2 mm was noted.
