Background: The prostate may become larger and begin to cause problems as male ages. Ultrasound is a commonly used imaging modality for the assessment of the prostate. Objective: The aim of this study was to identify the normal measurements (volume and diameters) of the prostate gland in Khartoum state Sudan in normal Sudanese. Method: This descriptive study of the study was done in Sudan teaching hospital, from March – to October 2019. 60 patients were randomly selected, their age ranged from 20 to 60 years; patients with symptoms related to prostate pathologies were excluded. Transabdominal ultrasound scanning by3.5 MHz probes was performed. And the Maximum length, width, and depth of the prostate diameters were obtained as well as the prostate volumes. Results: The results of the study revealed that the prostate length, width and thickness Diameters mean values were (4.88) cm, (3.37) cm, and (4.55) cm respectively, the Mean prostate volume obtained from the above parameters was18.65 ml. The study also showed that there was an increase in the prostate volume in relation to an increase in the patient's age and weight. Transabdominal ultrasound is a respectful approach and should be used confident pathologies among Sudanese and for normal measurements.
