MR/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy

Alexander Kutikov, MD, FACS, Attending Surgeon, Urologic Oncology

MR/ultrasound fusion biopsy is a powerful diagnostic tool for the analysis, planning, and targeted biopsy of the prostate.

A biopsy option for many patients with elevated and/or rising PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels, it may effectively detect tumors in men with prior negative biopsies but persistently elevated PSA levels.

The technology fuses pre-biopsy MR images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images in real time to create a detailed, three-dimensional view of the prostate, reducing chances that an aggressive form of prostate cancer is missed.
