Procedure - Prostate Ultrasound and Biopsy

A procedure to evaluate abnormal results of a digital rectal exam or an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. A prostate ultrasound involves a probe about the size of a finger that is inserted a short distance into the rectum. The probe produces harmless high-frequency sound waves that are recorded and transformed into images of the prostate gland to visualize the prostate. The ultrasound imaging is used to guide a small biopsy needle into the prostate. The needle removes small amounts of tissue to be analyzed. Results of the procedure will assist physicians in diagnosing prostate disorders and diseases.
