Today MRI and MRS are an integral part of prostate screening

Summary for Prostate CA Early Detection

In summary, it should be noted that prostate cancer is now the most common malignant tumor of the man. With increasing frequency even younger men are affected.

Early detection is the only chance of cure and preservation of the ability to achieve orgasm. Especially in the new millennium, increasing efforts are taken fore risk-adapted treatment of prostate cancer and to design treatment patient-specific in order to achieve maximum tumor control with a minimum complication rate. To achieve this goal, precise localization and characterization of the tumor and its surroundings is indispensable before starting the treatment.

The multi-parametric MRI provides high accuracy of over 91% in the detection and characterization of malignant tumor and is thus an indispensable complement to the urological checkups, especially for the very small tumors, which are not conspicuous in any other screening.

The differentiation between healthy and malignant tissue remains intact even after treatment of prostate cancer.

Treffsicherheit 91%

The multi-parametric MRI is a noninvasive, radiation-free and basically little stressful investigation procedure, which is repeatable as often as necessary.

However, the use of the latest technologies as applied in our practice, is a prerequisite for an accurate result.
