Prostate MRI • MR/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy

Are you a candidate for Prostate MRI and MR/ultrasound fusion biopsy?

• Patients with elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
• Negative prior transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy with continued elevation or rising PSA
• Positive digital rectal examination with negative transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy 


Targeted Prostate Biopsy

Prostate MR images can potentially identify specific areas within the gland that are suspicious and require further evaluation.

Performing biopsy with MR/US fusion holds the potential to target the suspicious areas, reduce the number of tissue samples acquired, and may reduce the risk of infection, bleeding, pain and recovery time.

MR/ Ultrasound biopsy is the new standard in prostate care. This technique fuses the pre-biopsy MR images of the prostate with the ultrasound-guided biopsy images in real time for excellent delineation of the prostate and suspicious lesions.
