Pak J Radiol May ;27(1):19-23.

Objective To determine the diagnostic accuracy of transrectal ultrasound in detecting carcinoma of prostate Setting A prospective, cross-sectional study was performed from 1st February 2006 to 31st July 2016. Transrectal ultrasound was performed with gray-scale and color doppler. Later on, histopathology of these patients was conducted either by surgery or after biopsy. Results Out of total 54 patients, mean age was 61 ±7.89 years (range 53 to 90 years). Diagnostic accuracy of Color Doppler Transrectal Ultrasound taking histopathology as gold standard showed sensitivity of 79.0%, Specificity 73.0%, Accuracy 77.0%. Conclusion Color Doppler ultrasound found to be a very important adjunct to gray-scale ultrasound as it increases the diagnostic accuracy of carcinoma prostate.
