Objective.

The first group included 21 patients (23.1 %) with suspected prostate carcinoma, later they underwent puncture multifocal biopsy of prostate with morphological verification of prostate carcinoma.

There were defined PSA (prostate specific antigen) level, and performed TRUS (transrectal ultrasound), biopsy and sonoelastography of prostate. In 72 patients SEG (sonoelastography)-picture of prostate was compared to morphological diagnosis. According to SEG findings, 43 (81.1 %) patients were revealed to have the areas of reduced compliance due to what malignancy in prostate gland (PG) was excluded. Morphological diagnosis of prostate carcinoma was confirmed in 21 patients. In 51 patients SEG-picture corresponded to benign process confirmed by histology.Conclusion. <span style="font-family: [...]
