Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial
Utility of Adding MR Fusion to Standard US Guided Prostate Biopsy
The purpose of this study is to utilize this technology in the early detection and staging of pathologic states within prostate cancer patients using the information obtained on mpMRI and serum biomarkers from the patient's blood (if collected). Ultimately, investigators hope to improve the diagnostic accuracy and treatment selection process for these patients. Applying the fusion software which adds mpMRI to ultrasound images in real time, to an otherwise clinically standard but non-targeted ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy procedure will help with accurate and early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
