MRI-guided Prostate Biopsies
Our service also performs transperineal MRI-guided prostate biopsies. These are performed in the MRI suite with intraprocedural MRI guidance and monitoring to ensure accurate targeting of even sub-centimeter prostate lesions.
This approach allows biopsies from any part of the gland and are particularly helpful in patients with rectal inflammation or an absent rectum (due to prior surgery). Additional indications may include a history of infection with prior transrectal biopsy, concurrent anticoagulant medication, lesions located anteriorly in the prostate or very small lesions (<10mm).
