Metro Central Ultrasound is pleased to offer prostate ultrasound exams to patients in Toronto and the surrounding areas. Conveniently located near St. Michael’s Hospital, our ultrasound clinic delivers efficient and accurate results for prostate ultrasounds as well as many other types of diagnostic ultrasound tests. Your doctor may order a prostate ultrasound in order to better assess the shape, size and condition of your prostate gland in order to make a diagnosis and recommend appropriate treatment. Using the latest ultrasound technology, our highly skilled technicians will guide you through all aspects of your prostate ultrasound.
Please speak to your doctor or call the clinic for more information about preparing for your prostate ultrasound. You may be asked to purchase a Fleet Enema from the pharmacy and use it according to the instructions prior to your exam.
A prostate ultrasound is conducted using a handheld device (called a transducer), which sends out sound waves at a high frequency. These sound waves move through your body and bounce off any tissues, organs and other structures back into the transducer. The collected sound waves are then interpreted by a computer to form a visualization of your organs.
This procedure is typically performed quickly and painlessly, but may cause some discomfort. Your ultrasound technician will take all measures possible to ensure you have most comfortable experience.
