New certainty in prostate cancer assessment
Our global MRI community MAGNETOM World offers peer-to-peer support and information providing first-hand experiences from Prostate MRI users.
Multiparametric MRI and MR-Guided In-Bore Biopsy for targeted tissue sampling in personalized treatment.
One of the main challenges in the management of prostate cancer is to identify the patients which actually benefit from treatment from a huge pool of indolent cancers.
Besides the advantage of Multiparametric MRI to triage patients for biopsies, mpMRI can help in the prognostic stratification, especially when it comes to targeted sampling of representative biopsies.
Directly MRI guided biopsies are the most accurate approach, enabling direct control and correlation of imaging and histopathology.
Prostate Cancer – Meeting Clinical Needs by Advanced MRI at Diagnosis and on Follow-Up: One challenge that radiologists will face is how to communicate complex multifunctional information to clinicians looking after patients. One method is to use fusion tools which allow anatomical and functional imaging to be co-localised using advanced, non-rigid software algorithms which can also be extremely useful for the purpose of data presentation, analysis, biopsy and therapy planning…
