The developments in multi-parametric MRI have opened the door to major improvements in the field of prostate biopsies. The combination of pre-diagnostic MRI and targeted biopsies, using transperineal template techniques has led to increased sensitivity and specificity in the detection of clinically significant cancer.
Not only does the use of transperineal template biopsy technique significantly reduce the ris...
The latest development in the prostate diagnostics field involves the fusion of the areas of suspicion, as detected on the multi-parametric MRI, with the live Ultrasound image during the transperineal template biopsy procedure.
Specifically designed software allows the radiologist to contour both the prostate and the areas of suspicions to create a biopsy plan. This plan is then loaded onto the live ultrasound i...
