Metro Central Ultrasound offers transrectal ultrasound exams for patients in the downtown core and beyond. Conveniently located near St. Michael’s Hospital, our clinic is easily accessible and offers efficient exams and accurate results.
Your doctor may have ordered a transrectal ultrasound in order to get a better look at your prostate and the surrounding tissues, in order to detect any abnormalities such as enlargement of the prostate, or to diagnose the presence of prostate cancer.
Please purchase a Fleet Enema from the pharmacy and follow the instructions for user prior to your ultrasound appointment.
A technician at Metro Central Ultrasound will guide you throughout the transrectal ultrasound process. It is our goal to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you, and to minimize any discomfort you might experience. The technician will use a small probe called a transducer to send ultrasonic sound waves through the wall of the rectum to examine the surrounding tissues and organs. These sound waves bounce off of the structures inside your body and are collected by the transducer. Next, a computer generated image will be created using the sound waves, allowing a medical professional to visualize the organs and help diagnose a number of issues and recommend treatment.
