Yes, MRI is the helpful investigation which can really say the presence or extent of scar tissue
My suggestion is go for MRI before undergoing surgery
Hope this helps

Okay, are you a urologist? I thought it appeared on the screen when I decided to use JustAnswer that there were 2 Urologists online. I have a couple more questions, but would prefer to discuss them with a urologist.
Okay, please wait for the urologist to take over.
This is Dr David
I am a cancer doctor.
what is his PSA and Gleason score of his prostate cancer.
most likely he is getting a PNET genetic test on his prostate, correct?
usually scar tissue doesn't show up great on pelvic CT scan or even an MRI scan.
I suspect he will be able to do a DaVinci robot assisted laproscopic radical prostatectomy if he has to.
this most likely will be safer than external beam radiation therapy given his prior injury to his rectum from prior surgery.
the best evaluation of his rectum and prostate most likely is from a trans-rectal ultrasound which he most likely had when he had his prostate biopsies.
did the urologist see narrowing of his rectum during his transrectal ultrasound prostate biopsy procedure?
