Abstract  
Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of transvaginal ultrasound in detecting endometrial malignancy in perimenopausal women. Material and Methods: The cross-sectional study included 100 perimenopausal women who had changes on the endometrium discovered through a regular ultrasound check-up and were referred to Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics “Narodni Front” in Belgrade during the period from September 1, 2012 to September 1, 2013. Transvaginal ultrasound was performed on each participant in the study. Parameters of the ultrasound examination composed a score system. Result: The results of regression analysis showed that this transvaginal ultrasound score have independent prognostic value for detection of endometrial malignancy. Score system showed that the value 8 had the best validity for the detection of endometrial malignity, with the sensitivity of 0.857 and specificity of 0.785. Conclusion: The collected transvaginal ultrasound sample had high predictive value for the discovery of malign changes on endometrium.
