Diagnose Prostate Cancer with Transrectal Elastosonography

Diana Sammuels

Prostate cancer diagnosis continues to be confirmed primarily through histopathology (PCa). For prostate biopsies, Transrectal Ultrasonography (TRUS) in grey scale (B-mode), which is based on increased brightness in accordance to the strength of the echo, is frequently employed. The grey scale TRUS is helpful in directing needles into the targeted area in accordance with the biopsy technique, but in up to 50% of cases, it is unable to distinguish between normal and malignant tissue. The greater density of the neoplastic tissues is known to influence the flexibility of the tissue. Consequently, when compressed and decompressed, cancer tissues project in a distinct way, making it possible to distinguish them from typical healthy tissue
