The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of F18- FES PET/MRI in patients with endometriosis, to establish the normal bio-distribution of F18- FES in pre-menopausal women, and to compare the diagnostic performance of F18- FES PET/MRI with that of conventional imaging (ultrasound and MRI alone) using surgical findings as the reference standard.

The purpose of this study is to investigate if complete pelvic peritonectomy is associated with improved quality of life in patients with chronic pelvic pain without histologic diagnosis of endometriosis as compared to patients with histologic diagnosis of endometriosis.
The purpose of this study is to map the female reproductive tract microbiome in patients with and without endometriosis to seek correlations of the microbiome to endometriosis, to determine if lower reproductive tract microbiome is predictive of upper reproductive tract changes by comparing composition of the microbiome in the lower and upper reproductive tracts, to explore immunologic differences in patients with and without endometriosis, compare presence of immunologic factors and cells between ectopic and eutopic endometrium, and to compare systemic immune system characteristics in patients with and without endometriosis using mass cytometry of peripheral blood samples.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnosis of endometriosis by gross visualization and compare to histologic evaluation during laparoscopic resection. By better understanding the polymorphic appearance of endometriosis, it will improve our diagnostic potential without having to rely on pathology. With this knowledge, it will improve patient centered care and possibly expedite treatment.
