Transrectal Prostate Ultrasound (TRUS)

Transrectal Prostate - SIFSOF

The prostate is found under the base of the bladder in men. It circles the urethra like a napkin ring. The prostate gland produces and secretes an alkaline fluid, which energizes and protects the sperm during ejaculation.

Commonly the prostate enlarges and changes with age. When the prostate enlarges, it may block the bladder. Prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and prostate cancer (PCa) are the most common types of prostate disease.

Which ultrasound scanner do doctors use for transrectal prostate ultrasound evaluation?

PCa is the most common malignancy in men. Thereof, a Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) SIFULTRAS-5.43 is a widely used imaging modality for prostate evaluation.

The advantages of the double head convex and transvaginal color doppler wireless ultrasound scanner SIFULTRAS-5.43 over other modalities are low costs, good availability, and ability to visualize the prostate in real time. Detection and delineation of prostate pathology with imaging remains a challenging endeavour.

The portable WiFi ultrasound scanner SIFULTRAS-5.43 can measure the volume or size of the prostate to help plan treatment.

It is also applied for measurement of prostate volume, study of echotexture, and illustration of tissue stiffness or elasticity. The Prostate Diagnosis provides images of the anterior fibromuscular stroma.

It can detect bacterial prostatitis appears as a hypoechoic rim around the prostate and shows an increased flow. Ultrasound is the primary tool in investigating a nodule, detect abnormalities, and determine whether the gland is enlarged.

The scanning begins in the axial plane. The seminal vesicles are examined initially. As the probe is angled caudally the base of the prostate is seen. Once the prostate is examined in its entirety in this plane the probe is turned 90degrees in a sagittal plane. The probe is angled from one side across to the other.

A volume is taken by measuring height x length  in the sagittal plane and x width in the axial plane and multiply by 0.52. Look for changes in the contours and echogenicity in each zone.


Prostate ultrasound and biopsy is an exam that a urologist performs if a preliminary urological exam, such as a blood test, indicates that a patient may have prostate cancer.
