Figure 2 (A-D): The TRUS image of needle aspirating PA (A) The size, shape, location of the PA (hypoechoic lesion) was noted (B) An 18-gauge two-part needle was used for aspiration. The assembly involves a stylet with an 18-gauge needle. The needle is attached to a 20-cc syringe. The real-time TRUS-guided aspiration of PA was done in the longitudinal axis. The trajectory of the needle was ascertained using the electronic dotted line inbuilt in the probe (C) The aspirated fl uid was analyzed for culture, fungus, acid-fast bacilli (AFB) staining (D) A follow-up TRUS shows resolution of abscess
