URO TODAY: Knowing exactly where in the prostate a biopsy sample has come from is a problem for those diagnosing the disease, but scientists may have found a way to improve that by combining MRI scans with needle biopsy. READ MORE>

It is feasible to document the location of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsies on pre-procedure MRI by fusing the pre-procedure TRUS to an endorectal coil MRI using electromagnetic needle tracking.

This procedure may be useful in documenting the location of prior biopsies, improving quality control and thereby avoiding under-sampling of the prostate, as well as directing subsequent biopsies to regions of the prostate not previously sampled.
