MRI Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy

Dec 10, 2017

Brian Butler, MD, Urologist

MRI ultrasound fusion biopsy is the most effective way to diagnosis prostate cancer. The procedure involves two steps. An MRI allows physicians to view the inside of the prostate gland before the biopsy. During the procedure, ultrasound images are fused with the MRI images and guide the urologist. The technique has improved biopsy detection rates from about 30 percent to about 80 percent. It has also reduced the number of total biopsies required by about 30 percent.
