Karmanos Cancer Institute to Offer New Technology to Detect Prostate Cancer

The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute is using a sophisticated new way to more effectively diagnose and treat prostate cancer. Urology specialists at Karmanos have begun using the UroNav Fusion Biopsy System, which fuses three dimensional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) images of the prostate with live ultrasound images to precisely target prostate biopsies. Those who are eligible for this technology are men who have elevated PSA test results and have never had a prostate biopsy or men diagnosed with a small amount of cancer who are considering active surveillance. The system also is used to detect tumor progression in men who have been on active surveillance for several years. Dr. Cher said these are common scenarios in the Karmanos urology clinic. Demand for the system is increasing rapidly. Patients typically have an MRI performed first, which takes about an hour. Radiologists then analyze the images and identify suspicious areas using a standardized scoring system. At the time of biopsy, which occurs after the MRI, urologists import the MRI images digitally into the UroNav system where they are fused with the live ultrasound images captured during the biopsy procedure.
