If you have concerns about your prostate and want a diagnosis, BMI Three Shires has access to specialised equipment and consultants who can provide diagnosis and treatment for suspected or actual prostate cancer.
Our Multi-Parametric MRI allows for early detection of prostate cancer without invasive biopsy. If the scan reveals areas that need further investigations, the images can be used to target the biopsy.
What are the benefits of using this service?
Currently TRUS Biopsy can give a false negative due to the large area of prostate that can be missed. The Multi-Parametric Prostate MRI provides a more detailed and complex view of the prostate which will provide the consultant or GP information regarding the diagnosis of the issue.
For the patient, the imaging technique is much more comfortable and less invasive than having a biopsy. The MRI also offers a reduced risk of infection.
Who is this suitable for?
Multi-Parametric MRI is suitable for the following patients:
- Men who have a rising or abnormally high PSAAre being recommended for non-targeted needle biopsy
- Have low risk prostate cancer and are considering active surveillance
- Are on active surveillance
- Have already been treated for prostate cancer
