There are two types of ultrasound diagnostics:
Transabdominal. The study is carried out through the anterior abdominal wall. The condition of the bladder, prostate, seminal vesicles is assessed. It is recommended (necessarily) to drink a liter of water an hour before the procedure, as the fluid in the bladder improves visibility.
Transrectal (TRUS). More accurate research. In addition, it is suitable for overweight patients. In the evening before the ultrasound scan and in the morning three hours before the examination, the patient should do a cleansing enema. If the patient is allergic to latex, has hemorrhoids or cracks in the anus, this should be reported to the doctor. After rectal surgery, TRUS cannot be performed.
