Transrectal Ultrasound Examination

Purpose

In the case of men, the examination is principally for examining the exact structure of the prostate and the seminal vesicles.  Prior to surgery, it is used to ascertain possible spreading of rectal abnormalities.  In young girls (virgins), it is used instead of vaginal ultrasound.

Advance preparation

Bowels should be emptied the morning of the examination.  If this can be accomplished spontaneously, then no other preparation is necessary.  If not, then a Glycerin suppository should be inserted in the morning.  No enema is required.

Procedure

The area of the body to be examined must be accessible.

Contraindications

No absolute contraindications except for inflamed hemorrhoids or a tight anus.

The Patient will be given a written report of the results.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE. A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
