Prostate biopsy

If a suspicious area is found on the mpMRI scan, IHS can perform an MRI-guided biopsy that is targeted to the suspicious area. A targeted MRI-guided biopsy provides greater accuracy in diagnosis with fewer needle cores being taken, resulting in less pain and a lower risk of infection compared with a trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) biopsy.

MRI Guided prostate biopsy


An MRI-guided biopsy takes place while the patient is “in-bore”—inside the MRI machine. The biopsy needle is guided to the suspicious area and provides a record of exactly where the core or sample was taken. An mpMRI scan and MRI-guided biopsy are invaluable tools for the treatment planning, no matter which course of treatment you choose.
