Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer for men. In fact, one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. A new alternative in diagnosing new and recurrent prostate cancers is Prostate MRI. This simple exam allows for early detection of prostate cancer or abnormalities.
Prostate MRI uses computer-aided detection (CAD) to pinpoint specific areas within the prostate gland that are suspicious and may require further evaluation.
Prostate MRI is becoming more common in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. If your Urologist tells you to get an MRI, do you know what to expect? In this story, you can see what the exam is like and how the images are used to identify cancer that could be missed with ultrasound alone.
