USPSTF Recommendations Ignore Realities of Breast Cancer

Annual mammogram screening beginning at age 40 saves lives. U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends less frequent screening at a later age, not because screening will not save lives, but because it will not save sufficient numbers of lives when started before age 50.

The guidelines are based on outdated, blemished data and do not evaluate cost-effectiveness or any other benefits of early detection. In fact, USPSTF states, “Screening mammography in women ages 40 to 49 years may reduce the risk of dying of breast cancer, but the number of deaths averted is much smaller than in older women and […]

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 […]
