Transrectal Ultrasound

Transrectal ultrasound

A transrectal ultrasound is used to look at the prostate gland and other pelvic organs in men. A thin probe called a transducer is covered with a lubricated sheath similar to a condom. The transducer is then gently put into the rectum. The transducer sound waves make a picture on a TV screen (monitor).
