Transrectal Ultrasound

Related Conditions
The University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, the state's only comprehensive cancer center, offers transrectal ultrasound to evaluate patients for potential colon and rectal cancer.
This test is performed prior to consideration for rectal surgery. The ultrasound assesses the depth of the cancer within the rectum and helps evaluate if there is lymph node involvement.
Based on the results of this test, the appropriate treatment can be planned.
