Abstract

The development of ultrasound diagnostics of the prostate is described. With modern ultrasound technique in combination with guided biopsy transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is a powerful diagnostic means and very likely today's best screening tool (if screening would be regarded as feasible). The author advocates transrectal core biopsy instead of fine-needle aspiration biopsy as histology does not have false positives and forms a firmer basis for grading.
