Transrectal Ultrasound Guided Biopsy of Prostate

A transrectal ultrasound guided biopsy of the prostate involves a urologist using ultrasound imaging to detect any abnormalities in the prostate. Biopsies remove small amounts of prostate tissue to analyze for diagnosis.

Condition it treats:

Prostate cancer

What happens during the procedure:

A small probe is inserted into the rectum to detect abnormalities of the prostate. The ultrasound waves then guide small needles to remove tiny amounts of tissue for prostate biopsies.


  • Radiation-free imaging that is less expensive than other forms of imaging
  • Causes no health problems
  • Can detect prostate cancer in the early stages
