A transrectal ultrasound is a specialized type of ultrasound that is used to visualize the prostate gland. This type of ultrasound is commonly used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as prostate cancer, enlarged prostate, and prostatitis. At Radiant Medical Imaging, we understand that this type of examination can be uncomfortable or intimate for some patients, and we are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of care and comfort during the procedure.
Our experienced and highly-trained technologists use state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment to provide detailed and accurate images of the prostate. The examination is performed by inserting a small probe into the rectum, which emits sound waves that create images of the prostate on a screen. The procedure is usually painless and takes about 30 minutes to complete.
At Radiant Medical Imaging, we are dedicated to offering the finest quality of care and comfort to our patients. We recognize that this type of examination might be difficult for some patients; thus, we train our technologists to be sympathetic to your needs. Our goal is to ensure that you are relaxed and at ease during the operation so that you can be assured that your health is in good hands.
