UroNav System Combines MRI and Ultrasound for Prostate Biopsies

UroNav System Combines MRI and Ultrasound for Prostate Biopsies
MRI and ultrasound images of prostateEvery year, approximately 239,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, but while most will die with the cancer and not from it, some men will have the type of prostate cancer that aggressively and rapidly kills. The new focus of today's oncological research is to accurately identify and differentiate a slow-growing cancer from a life-threatening one, and give a diagnosis as early as possible. A team of cancer experts from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center are advancing this diagnostic approach, using the UroNav System, which combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with ultrasound technology.
