A Prostate ultrasound test maybe used to evaluate any abnormal results of a rectal exam or an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Prostate ultrasound involves a probe that is inserted into the rectum. This probe produces harmless high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, that bounce off the surface of the prostate. The sound waves are recorded and transformed into video or photographic images of the prostate gland. The probe can provide images at different angles to estimate prostate size and detect any abnormal growths.
