MRI Fusion Guided Biopsy
This minimally invasive procedure fuses pre-biopsy MR images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images in real time, for clear delineation of the prostate and suspicious lesions. The UroNav fusion biopsy system uses this critical diagnostic information to provide Urologists with a targeted approach to prostate biopsy. With this new technology, Urologists can more easily locate aggressive prostate cancer. The technology offers the potential to minimize the over diagnosis of non-aggressive cancers, while maximizing the likelihood of detecting aggressive tumors.
- The procedure takes about a half hour.
- You may receive anesthesia during your procedure.
- A prostate biopsy specimen will be obtained for diagnosis.
