Multi-Parametric MRI scans are used to detect prostate cancer. This breakthrough MRI scan has the potential to reduce the risk of unnecessary biopsies. However, the results of the scan can also be used to enhance a TRUS biopsy if required making the procedure more effective.
X-rays are a widely used diagnostic tool, which help medical professionals to diagnose problems with bones and some soft tissues. X-rays use low levels of radiation to allow images of the inside of the body to be produced.
An ultrasound scan is a painless test that uses sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside your body. It is a very commonly used test and can be used in several different clinical specialities.
