Improving Biopsies of the Prostate

common.study.values.description

Real Time MRI Fused to Cone Beam CT Guided Biopsies of the Prostate.

The purpose of this study is to investigate a novel method of prostate biopsy using a computerized guidance system to accurately target lesions within the prostate. This method of prostate biopsy involves using a computerized technology that permits a lesion detected on MRI to be projected by a computer into 3 dimensions on a patient's CT scan. A CT guided biopsy can then be performed where a needle is advanced into the patient, where the computer has projected the image of the tumor that cannot normally be seen on CT. This is a randomized, cross over designed trial to compare this new method of prostate biopsy to the currently employed standard transrectal ultrasound guided prostate (TRUSP) biopsy technique.

Procedure - CT Fusion + Transrectal U/S Guided Prostate Biopsy

All patients will receive both a CT fusion biopsy and a standard TRUSP biopsy. They will be randomized to which is received first, followed by receipt of the alternative procedure.
