Expert Diagnosis for Prostate Cancer Using the UroNav Prostate Fusion Biopsy System
As the latest innovation in prostate cancer detection, the state-of-the-art UroNav prostate fusion biopsy system expertly delineates the prostate and suspicious lesions.
According to research, approximately 192,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. The debilitating condition takes one in every 39 lives. Moreover, conventional diagnostic technology does not have a great record of effective and accurate diagnosis.
UroNav helps patients receive an more precise diagnosis helping doctors treat the patient more accurately. This cutting-edge technology has transformed how urologists diagnose the chronic condition and has helped countless patients gain long-term relief from the debilitating symptoms associated with prostate cancer.
What Are the Benefits of UroNav Guided Fusion Biopsy?
As the leading diagnostic tool for prostate cancer, the UroNav guided fusion biopsy system combines pre-biopsy magnetic resonance (MR) images with ultrasound-guided biopsy images. This helps urologists by providing them with a clear view of the biopsy needle and allowing the images to be reviewed in 2D and 3D post-procedure. UroNav utilizes powerful electromagnetic tracking and navigation to enhance precision.
This is extremely effective in:
- Identifying suspicious areas with precision
- Reducing the risk of overtreatment caused by insufficient diagnosis or misdiagnosis
- Accurately identifying the best course of individualized treatment
- Lowering the risk of bleeding and potential infection
- Reducing recovery time
- Reducing the need for multiple biopsies
