Ultrasound Transrectal Rectal

What is an Ultrasound Transrectal Rectal Test?

Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) and ultrasound of the prostate (USG) use sound waves to take pictures of a man's prostate gland.

The doctor will order this test if you have symptoms like trouble urinating or a high blood test result. It is also used to look into a nodule found during a rectal exam, find any problems, and determine if the gland is more significant than usual.

Why is it done? 

A TRUS is often used to help diagnose prostate cancer when the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level is high, the doctor feels an abnormal area during a digital rectal exam (DRE), or a man has specific symptoms like trouble urinating. It's done to:

  • Check the prostate for any unusual spots.
  • Guide a needle through the prostate during a biopsy to get samples.
  • Check the prostate's size and shape.
