Transrectal Elastosonography (TRES) is an emerging technique that could map out the relative tissue stiffness of prostate gland. This can differentiate cancer foci from the benign tissues within prostate gland. A recent study reports that TRES can detect up to 90% of PCa with a specificity of 80%. While, using histopathology of the radical prostatectomy specimens as reference standard, the sensitivity of TRES ranged between 0.71-0.82 and the specificity ranged between 0.60-0.95. With grey scale TRUS, localization of the cancer foci in prostate gland is a challenge. However, TRES seems to be better in localization of the tumour foci.
Journal of Medical Diagnostic Methods is one of the top online publishing journals for research from the field of Transrectal Elastosonography.
