Rectal ultrasound of the prostate gland

What is rectal ultrasound of the prostate gland?

Transrectal ultrasound of the prostate gland is an affordable, accurate and highly sensitive diagnostic method that is widely used to monitor the condition of the prostate. This procedure allows you to clearly visualize the structure of the prostate and detect pathological changes in the tissues, such as prostatitis, adenoma, vesiculitis and other diseases. During ultrasound, a special transducer is inserted into the rectum, thus ensuring high image quality and diagnostic accuracy. Our medical center Zdravo, located in the Primorsky district of Odessa, offers ultrasound on modern equipment to maintain prostate health at a high level.
