Color Doppler ultrasound is widely used in the detection of prostate diseases. When clinically suspected of prostate diseases, it is usually necessary to have a look at the color Doppler ultrasound. Prostate ultrasound can detect prostate inflammation / abscess, prostate hyperplasia, prostate calcification, and prostate cancer. For the prostate, magnetic resonance examination can also be performed. Magnetic resonance examination has a high specificity and is used to identify prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer, the extent and stage of prostate cancer involvement, and so on.
Prostate color Doppler ultrasound requires drinking water to hold back urine
Prostate color Doppler ultrasound is one of the routine examinations for prostate, because it is cheap, no radiation, and widely used.
The prostate is located behind and behind the bladder. Before this test, you need to drink water to hold your urine and fill your bladder, so that you can better check the prostate. If you do n’t hold your urine, you wo n’t see the prostate. Therefore, when Dr. Choi feels that she is not holding urine enough and asks to drink water to hold her urine, she is actually responsible for you, so that she can see clearly. Imagine that if the doctor does not care about how you hold your urine, whether you can see it clearly or not, just take a look at it, there may be a leak, which is irresponsible.
What diseases can prostate color Doppler ultrasound check?
Color Doppler ultrasound can check what diseases the prostate? Palpation is the first step to check the prostate. When you suspect prostate disease, you need to do a color Doppler ultrasound examination.
- Prostatitis and prostate abscess, both of which are inflammatory diseases of the prostate, can be improved by absorption after anti-infection. At the same time in the diet, spicy food should be avoided.
- Prostate hyperplasia
It is the most common benign disease of middle-aged and elderly people. Common symptoms include poor urination and difficulty in urination. Color Doppler ultrasound can also be checked out.
- Prostate calcification
Prostate hyperplasia with calcification is very common in the clinic. If the symptoms are serious, you can do a prostatectomy to relieve the symptoms of urination.
- Prostate cyst or other diseases
Prostate cysts are a benign disease, and cysts are easy to check under color Doppler ultrasound.
Prostate diseases can also do magnetic resonance and PSA blood tests
For prostate diseases, you can first do color ultrasound screening for any diseases. If you want to do further examination, then you need to do magnetic resonance examination, especially magnetic resonance flat scan + enhanced scan. Magnetic resonance has a good resolving power for the inner and outer prostate. Prostate hyperplasia tends to occur in the inner peripheral zone, while prostate cancer tends to occur in the outer peripheral zone.
Magnetic resonance imaging is used to distinguish between prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer. It is used to assess the extent and stage of prostate cancer involvement.
Prostate cancer is clinically suspected, and a blood test is required to detect PSA. PSA serves as a tumor marker specific for prostate cancer. If PSA is elevated, pay attention to whether you have prostate cancer.
To go for a physical examination, one of which is the monitoring of tumor markers, and the other is PSA. If it is elevated, you need to do a color Doppler ultrasound to check whether there are tumors in the prostate. Take a look.
In addition, for prostate diseases, don’t specifically do CT examination, CT examination can not distinguish between prostate hyperplasia and early prostate, can be used for the staging of prostate cancer.
Whether it is color Doppler ultrasound, magnetic resonance examination, CT or PSA detection, if the prostate has a lesion, it cannot be diagnosed with prostate cancer. It can only be suspected and considered. Eventually, a biopsy is required for pathology. A biopsy can only confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer if you really see the tumor cells.
