Prostate Biopsy Option with 3D MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Technology
MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Robotic Prostate Biopsy is the latest technology available in the detection and management of prostate cancer and URODOCS is proud to offer this new standard of care.
Conventional TRUS prostate biopsy techniques are referred to as “blind” biopsies, since physicians typically cannot easily view the specific location of any abnormal tissue. Now, using New MRI techniques and the Artemis 3D imaging and navigation system, Urologists are able to better identify and more accurately biopsy suspicious prostate cancer areas.
The MRI/Ultrasound Fusion (or MR/US Fusion) targeted biopsy procedure starts with a dedicated MRI prostate. These images are then reviewed, and suspicions areas identified. Then the images are fused with real-time ultrasound images to create a detailed 3D highdefinition map of the prostate. The patient is sedated for the procedure, making the biopsy painless. This allows the physician to accurately target any visible lesions during the biopsy The technique also allows the patient to be much more comfortable and safer from infection.
Patients recommended for this procedure are men who, typically, have a prior negative biopsy, elevated and/or rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels despite negative ultrasound-guided biopsy or those with other clinical concern for prostate cancer.

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2023 are about 288,300 new cases of prostate cancer, and About 34,700 deaths from prostate cancer, and one in eight men will be diagnosed in his lifetime. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but with early detection, most men have an excellent survival rate.
Urodocs’ introduction of the MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Prostate biopsy system is the latest breakthrough option in providing patients with improved diagnosis and accuracy in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
Additionally, if a patient has minimal disease he may be a candidate for a Minimally Invasive Focal Therapy such as Cryo-Ablation or Nano-knife focal ablation, greatly enhancing preservation of sexual function and continence.
