To study the transrectal ultrasonographic findings in benign and malignant prostatic lesions with respect to its site, echopattern, capsular status, local invasion and their histopathological correlation. Material and Method: A total of 100 patients with clinical suspicion of prostatic disease were examined by transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) followed by their histopathological correlation to study the sensitivity and specificity of transrectal ultrasonography for diagnosis of carcinoma prostate. Result and conclusion: The sensitivity and specificity of TRUS for diagnosis of carcinoma prostate was found to be 86.96 percent and 71.43 percent respectively. The relative low specificity reflects the difficulty of interpretation of lesion and overlapping echogenic pattern. The percentage of false negative was 13.04 percent and the percentage of false positive was 28.57 percent.
