Size and weight of prostates were measured in 95 cases by means of transrectal ultrasonotomography. It was found that transrectal ultrasonotomography was the best method for this purpose. The measured sizes and weights of the prostate in normal subjects and in patients with several prostatic diseases were then compared. It was not always possible, however, to decide whether the prostate was normal only from these measurements.
