Ultrasonography is a test that produces an image through sounds. Sound waves enter into the body and strike the cells, the cells have created echo and thus the image of the specific zone has been stored in the computer screen. The Trans Rectal Scan –Prostate is a specific name of ultrasonography test. The painless and harmless sound strikes the internal organs of prostate and produces the image through echo. This test uses sophisticated tools and technique. Patients shouldn't imagine the threat of this test. The physician would guide you properly and you just need to believe him or her. Trans Rectal Scan – Prostate test is named as TRUS, which scan the prostate gland.
The preparation that is related to the patient only;

5. The body would be positioned in the right place correctly for the test.
While the doctors have seen the blood test report of prostate-specific antigen (PSA blood test) and marked the positive signs, then the next stage is to see the TRUS report. Through the Trans Rectal Scan – Prostate process doctors have identified cancer in the prostate gland. Sometimes, people may show the symptoms of prostate gland cancer and the doctor wants to have the TRUS report for stepping forward. The patients that are addicted to the prostate gland cancer should do the biopsy tests to see its actual condition.
Trans Rectal scanning needs a heavy budget, so doctors do not refer it casually. If the primary tests are driving the case towards cancer and the most percentage is detecting cancer's presence, then the doctors want to see the scanning and testing reports of biopsy for being sure.
Scanning the prostate gland is a digital-based testing. In the clinic, the doctors would install a finger sized probe into the rectum and send a sound wave through that. The sound wouldn't reach the ear, but it would hit the surface with high frequency. The frequency would be converted into video through the digital monitor. The snapshot of the video is the report of Trans Rectal Scan – Prostate test. It shows the image of the inner side of the prostate gland. The patient should lie still on the bed for getting the right frequency.
