Transanal ultrasound: clinical indications

Transanal ultrasound is a fundamental exam for the anatomical and functional evaluation of the sphincter complex and for the diagnosis of numerous anorectal disorders. Endoanal ultrasound has numerous clinical recommendations and is particularly useful for the diagnosis and the correct evaluation of:

  • dysfunctional disorders such as faecal incontinence, obstructed defecation syndrome and abdominal pelvic dyssynergia
  • inflammatory diseases, such as fistulas and anal abscesses
  • neoplasms of the anal canal

Transanal ultrasound with traditional ultrasonic endoanal probe

Endo-anal ultrasound probes normally used to perform transanal ultrasonography have limitations which can make it difficult to carry out this important diagnostic test.

The imaging ultrasound system is generally a static and cumbersome instrument which needs a dedicated and static environment. The size, delicacy and poor handling of this equipment make it difficult and inconvenient to move from a day hospital and clinic setting to the operating theatre.

These features mean that traditional EAUS probes are not very versatile in terms of multisite/setting use.
