MRI Fusion Guided Prostate Biopsy

Advanced Prostate Cancer Detection with MRI Fusion Guided Prostate Biopsy

MRI fusion-guided biopsy is the latest technology that helps accurately target specific suspicious areas in the prostate for cancer. This technology provides a higher probably that a significant lesion is not missed during the biopsy procedure and will lessen the need for repeat biopsies for patients. For patients, this means less risk and early prostate cancer detection, and the earlier the detection, the higher the percentage to cure early.

MRI fusion-guided biopsies fuse together pictures from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and combine them with real-time ultrasound to create a three-dimensional view of the prostate, which the physician can then do accurate biopsies. The introduction of this product was the result of nearly a decade of research and development, principally conducted at the National Cancer Institute.

Prostate cancer is a common cancer in men

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer has become the most common form of cancer in America for men and the second-leading cause of cancer death in this population.

MRI fusion-guided biopsy is poised to become the diagnosis standard for prostate cancer detection.
