Ultrasound Transrectal

5000+ scans done & counting

A transrectal ultrasound is a medical imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the rectum and nearby structures, such as the prostate in men and rectovaginal septum in women. This test provides valuable information that can help diagnose conditions like prostate cancer in men, rectal cancer, and conditions related to the female reproductive system. The procedure is typically quick, minimally invasive, and causes little to no pain.

Specific Instructions:

When preparing for a transrectal ultrasound, the following instructions may be helpful:

  • Fasting : There's usually no need to fast before this procedure.

  • Bowel Prep : Your doctor may ask you to use a rectal enema to clean out your rectum. This is to ensure clear images during the ultrasound.

  • Medications : If you're taking any medications, especially blood thinners, discuss them with your doctor. They may give specific instructions about taking these medications before the procedure.

  • Clothing : Wear loose, comfortable clothing to the hospital or clinic. You'll likely need to change into a hospital gown for the procedure.

  • Allergies : If you have any known allergies, especially to latex or certain gels, inform your healthcare provider.
