Overview

Ultrasound can be used to diagnose prostatitis. On ultrasonography, focal hypoechoic area in the periphery of the prostate represents prostatitis. Fluid collection can show abscess formation. Colour doppler ultrasound may also prove to be very effective.[1][2][3]

Ultrasound

On ultrasonography, focal hypoechoic region located in the peripheral part of the prostate represents prostatitis. Fluid collection can show abscess formation. It is suspected when the fever fails to resolve after 36 hours of therapy and needs further workup. Colour doppler ultrasound may also prove to be very effective.[1][4][5]
