Current Concepts and Evaluation of Uro-Rectal Diseases by Transrectal Ultrasound: A Review

Gautam D, Kelly W, Reese I, Yiji S and Sardar AK

This article specifically discusses the clinical importance and current role of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) to index the clinical suspicion of uro-rectal diseases. The traditional digital rectal examination is an inadequate method with low sensitivity and specificity, and confidence level for uro-rectal diseases. TRUS provides further imaging modalities, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and three-dimensional reconstruction. Prostate cancer can be diagnosed in patient with refractory prostate-specific antigen to increase to increase diagnostic modalities with fusion biospies. The outcome of uro-rectal diseases can be improved by utilization of initial TRUS, a non-invasive and radiation free, extension of physical diagnosis.
