Correctly conducted ultrasound of the prostate and the bladder provides important information for determining the course of further treatment of the sick person. This diagnostic detects prostate volume, presence of stones in the prostate and in the bladder, presence of residual urine in the bladder, thickness of its walls.
- poor professional level of diagnosticians;
- diagnostic equipment of poor quality;
- diagnosis is the beginning of so-called treatment process, and more specifically, the contact of the patient with the doctor. Dishonest doctor overstates the results with the aim of attracting new patients as a source of income;
Based on the above recommended it is necessary:
- to ask without tension about possibilities offered by the ultrasound. It would be useful to get acquainted with the features of the ultrasound system via the Internet in advance;
- to clarify the essence of the procedure. It must necessarily include transrectal ultrasound of the prostate (TRUS), which will give you much more accurate info than ultrasonography of the prostate (ultrasound);
- to have the prostate and the bladder examined by specialist focusing exclusively on diagnosis or by high level urologist;
to prepare for testing properly. Do not cause excessive overflow of the bladder (this is the wrong recommendation distorting analysis). Doing this you eliminate the possibility of spasm, and, as a consequence, subsequent incomplete emptying;
- to understand the results of the analysis immediately after the completion of the process in the presence of the diagnostician.
In general, it is necessary to be awake not only for a patient from the countryside, but also for people from large cities, like London or New-York, Los Angeles or Montreal, Sidney or Chicago, Melbourne or Philadelphia.
