Prostate MRI & MRI Guided Biopsy

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. Prostate cancer screening begins with a blood test that monitors levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Elevated PSA levels may indicate the presence of prostate cancer and men suspected of having the disease are typically referred for ultrasound-guided biopsy. Not only do these biopsies carry risks such as infection, but they also can produce false negative results.

Windsong Radiology’s state of the art technology offers an analytical and interventional option called Prostate MRI which can spare unnecessary biopsies and pinpoint areas of concern

Windsong was the first in the area to offer prostate imaging using 3T MRI radiography. This technique incorporates the high resolution of Windsong’s 3T MRI images and offers increased sensitivity and improved accuracy in localizing prostate cancer. Windsong’s Prostate MRI’s help urologists and oncologists with cancer screeninng, allowing them to better visualize suspected prostate cancer and often eliminating the need for a TRUS biopsy and associated side effects. This alternative to a TRUS biopsy provides a more targeted approach, improving our ability to diagnose prostate cancer. It enables Windsong radiologists to find disease earlier when it is more easily treated.
