Dr. Van Engelshoven was on leave from the Department of Radiology. Ziekenhuis St. Annadal, Maastricht, Belgium, January—April, 1978. Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography: February 1979 - Volume 3 - Issue 1 - p 45-51 Buy Abstract The conventional anatomy of the prostate is reviewed and the computed tomography (CT) anatomy described and illustrated. The results of 55 “normal” cases were analyzed for size and relationship to the symphysis pubis, retropubic space, and bladder, as shown on CT sections correlating the features with age and possible urinary symptoms. Attention is also drawn to the differences between phleboliths and prostatic calcification. Computed tomography is an effective method of demonstrating the prostate and surrounding structures and of assessing prostatic enlargement. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
