Abstract

The Prostate Is A Small Organ Situated Deep In Male Pelvis And Is The Organ Most Prone To Pathological Change. Indeed, All Men Who Live Past The Age Of 50 Will Develop Histological Change Within The Prostate, Most Common Process Being BPH. Many Older Men Also Develop Prostate Cancer The Second Most Common Carcinoma In Men. For A Long Time Using Conventional Imaging Techniques We Were Unable To Directly Visualize The Prostate. However We Assessed The Prostatic Enlargement By Its Effect Over Adjacent Structures Like Prostatic Urethra, Bladder Base And Distal Ureters By Doing Voiding Cystourethrogram, Cystogram And Intravenous Urogram. But We Were Not Able To Characterize Various Prostatic Lesions. Nowadays With The Advent Of Sectional Imaging Techniques Like Ultrasound, Computerised Tomography And Magnetic Resonance Imaging, We Are Able To Directly Visualize The Prostate. Since Ultrasound Is Free From Radiation Hazards And Because Of Its Easy Availability, It Is A Valuable Technique For Detecting Prostatic Diseases. With The Advent Of Transrectal Sonography We Are Able To Get A Detailed View Of Prostate. As We Are Using High Resolution Transducers With High Frequency Ranges And Sharply Focused Near Fields, We Are Able To Appreciate Zonal Anatomy Of Prostate, The Lesion Distribution And To Characterize Various Prostatic Lesions. Colour Doppler Techniques Help Us To Know The Vascular Nature Of Various Lesions And Thus Help To Differentiate And Localise The Lesions. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Helps Us To Get Multiplanar Views Of The Prostate Along With Adjacent Structures In The Pelvis. Also It Is Able To Clearly Delineate The Zonal Anatomy Especially With Endorectal Coil. With Transrectal Sonography We Are Able To Localise The Lesions Accurately And Under Its Guidance, Biopsies are Taken.
