prostate cancer care


A multi-parametric MRI (mpMRI) scan of the prostate to identify any areas that might be suspicious for clinically significant cancer is done. State of the art MRI scanning technology is used to image the prostate which includes the use of a phased array pelvic coil. If a suspicious area is found on the mpMRI scan, then a MRI-guided biopsy can be performed and that is targeted to the suspicious area. A targeted MRI-guided biopsy provides greater accuracy in diagnosis.
