Advanced detection protocol details the size, location and shape of prostate tumors and MRI-Guided Laser Ablation dramatically reduces impotence and incontinence risk.
The Sperling Prostate Center provides patients and doctors precise prostate cancer information for detection, treatment planning and follow up.
Our comprehensive detection protocol creates a detailed prostate MAP that provides exclusive visual details about the size, location and shape of any prostate tumors - critical information for guiding a biopsy and/or choosing a prostate cancer treatment.
Using next generation MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) we can detect tiny tumors within the prostate which can then be sampled using our MRI-Guided Biopsy or MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy capabilities - vital information that can help patients and doctors defer, alter or more accurately direct their diagnosis, treatment and follow up.
The Sperling Prostate Center performs MRI-Guided Prostate Laser Ablation, a minimally invasive treatment for prostate tumors that dramatically reduces risk of impotence and incontinence by creating “safety zones” to avoid vital organs directly related to a man's quality of life.
This revolutionary new procedure utilizes detailed prostate images generated from an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to precisely plan the treatment and visualize the tumor ablation (destruction) in real time. Performed on an outpatient basis, the treatment is an effective method to eradicate the primary tumor. The procedure requires no surgery, anesthesia or catheter. Completed in about one hour, the procedure can be repeated if necessary and does not preclude any future prostate therapies.
