One of the diagnostic tools for anal and rectal and pelvic floor diseases is the use of endo-anal (intra-rectal) and endo-rectal (intra-rectal) ultrasound. With a 2-degree probe, it can deliver 2-degree images of the anus and its surrounding tissues for accurate diagnosis.
Uses of Andal Anal Ultrasound :
Infectious anal diseases such as fistula and perianal abscess
Anal muscle tear (sphincter)
Preparation for Endosonography :
Early preparations for endo-anal ultrasound, including the use of bisacodyl suppository, are required to drain the end of the intestine.
Endo-anal ultrasound is painless and requires no anesthesia and lasts 1 to 5 minutes.
This ultrasound can be done at the doctor’s office and you can contact Dr. Joseph’s office for further information.
