Abstract

The present prospective study was carried out at a hospital attached to the Navodaya Medical College, Raichur, Karnataka. A total 50 cases of clinically suspected and digital rectal examination suggestive of prostatic diseases were scanned by transrectal ultrasound using endorectal probe of frequency 6.5MHZ attached to ultrasound machine. The confirmation of transrectal ultrasound findings were done by histopathological examination of prostatic biopsy or whole mount section of the surgical specimen obtained after radical prostatectomy or transurethral resection of prostate. We can conclude from the study results that, transrectal ultrasound examination is more accurate in identifying adjacent organ invasion in prostatic malignancies and doesn’t require fully distended bladder as compared to transabdominal ultrasound examination and the transrectal ultrasound procedure is well tolerated by most of the patients and also the procedure is more cost effective compared to other investigations like computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
