Transrectal Ultrasound and Prostate Biopsy

Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) utilizes a finger-like probe which is placed in the rectum in order to image the prostate. A prostate biopsy uses a thin needle through the rectum into the prostate for removal of core biopsies under ultrasonic guidance. TRUS allows for improved sampling of prostate tissue when a prostate biopsy is performed. This routine procedure is performed in our office. The prostate biopsies are examined by a group of highly qualified pathologists at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.Transrectal Ultrasound and Prostate Biopsy
