Study Compares MRI-TRUS Fusion Biopsy to Traditional Biopsy

Ongoing research has consistently shown that multiparametric prostate MRI can aid prostate cancer screening and improve detection rates. New results to a large-scale study investigating the effectiveness of MRI-TRUS fusion biopsy versus traditional TRUS biopsy demonstrate the superiority of multiparametric prostate MRI in prostate cancer detection.

MRI-TRUS Fusion Biopsy Versus Traditional TRUS Biopsy

In a study sponsored by the National Institute of Health, more than 1,000 men with elevated PSA levels were observed over a period of seven years. The purpose of the study was to investigate differences between MRI-TRUS fusion biopsy and traditional TRUS biopsy in the detection of intermediate- […]

Beyond Biopsy: A Growing Role for MRI in Prostate Cancer Care

Much attention paid to multiparametric prostate MRI has focused on its ability to improve prostate cancer detection and diagnosis. However, prostate MRI has the potential to improve other aspects of prostate cancer care. Beyond guiding biopsy needles, prostate MRI can also aid prostate cancer staging, inform treatment planning and to monitor patients following treatment.

Prostate MRI in Local Staging of Prostate Cancer

Pre-treatment staging is essential to determining an appropriate disease management strategy in men with prostate cancer. Staging prostate cancer currently relies on digital rectal exam, prostate-specific antigen levels and Gleason score. Collectively, these indicators can predict the risk of […]

Notification of Update to PIRADS

As you are aware, Rolling Oaks Radiology is one of the most active and experienced prostate MRI centers in the country. This letter is to inform you about recent PIRADS assessment changes for the interpretation of prostate MRI exams. PIRADS, initially developed in Europe, has been the international accepted interpretation standard for the past two years. These recent changes were announced by our joint steering committee at the annual meeting of the RSNA in November.

PIRADS assesses high-quality prostate MRI images with a score of 1-5 (5 most suspicious). The most important sequences are T2-weighted, diffusion-weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced. T2-weighted findings are […]

Informing Women About the Benefits of a Mammogram Exam

Despite large-scale campaigns to publicize the importance of breast cancer screening, a lot of faulty information regarding the mammogram exam is still being delivered to patients and sometimes interpreted as fact.

To gauge where gaps in knowledge about breast cancer screening are most commonly occurring, the Working Mother Research Institute recently surveyed more than 2,500 women aged 35 and older to see what they know. While the results contain good news, there are areas where physicians can better educate their patients.

Most Women Have Been Screened

Fortunately, many women are well aware of the importance of screening. A majority of women (80 […]
