Good question. Let's remember that clinical prostatitis is a set of symptoms. The question is if hyperechoic and hypoechoic findings in any way correlate with and/or suggest causes of prostatitis symptoms. I am aware of no data that would examine any association of hyperechoic and/or hypoechoic lesions and prostatitis symptoms.

Parenchyma: Abnormal echo-structure in the transitional region for presence in the right periurethral area of hypoechoic area due to chronic phlogistic situation.
Presence of one macrocalcification 12x7mm in the same place...

TRUS: Trans Rectal Ultra Sound
