    Study: Promising results for 3D ultrasound/MRI prostate biopsy

    Health Imaging & IT | Clint vanSonnenberg

    Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have demonstrated preliminary accuracy in the use of 3D ultrasound tracking and MR image fusion for biopsy of suspected prostate cancers, according to a study published in the May-June issue of Urologic Oncology. “Virtually all major cancers can be easily imaged within the organ of origin, but not [prostate cancer],” noted Shyam Natarajan, MS, from the Biomedical Engineering Interdepartmental Program at UCLA, and co-authors. “Imaging prostate cancer (CaP), while in a curable state, has proven elusive, despite a half-century of interest and effort.”
