Why a prostate biopsy via prostate mapping?



A TRUS Prostate Biopsy (a prostate biopsy performed with the guidance of the traditional method of Trans-Rectal Ultra Sound, or TRUS) is a prostate cancer diagnosis procedure typically used where a raised PSA (prostate specific antigen) is detected in men. A prostate biopsy performed with the TRUS method uses an ultrasound scanning probe inserted in the back passage and a biopsy needle to take samples of the prostate gland tissue.

The TRUS prostate biopsy method can give negative results in up to 1 in 5 men who actually have cancer, also it can sometimes wrongly report on the aggressiveness of prostate cancer.

Prostate Mapping is a new prostate biopsy process developed in London by leading urology and radiology consultants. This new method can be much more accurate than traditional prostate biopsies. It involves a template-guided biopsy and MRI scanning. A Prostate Mapping biopsy is performed under general anaesthetic.
