Clínica Premium has the innovative technique of fusion biopsy for the detection of prostate cancer.
At Clínica Premium we have the Fusion Biopsy technique; a great advance for the detection and precise diagnosis of prostate cancer. Fusion biopsy gives more precise results than traditional techniques, as it indicates the area of the prostate that is most likely to host the tumour, adjusting the level of prostate cancer detection beyond 90%. Of all the diagnostic tools available, fusion biopsy is the most accurate.
This biopsy consists of obtaining small samples from the prostate to know precisely if the prostate growth is benign or if there are malignant cells. The Fusion technique (Multiparametric Resonance for Prostate) with ultrasound-guided biopsy has been developed in recent years and offers much higher resolution than ultrasound.
The traditional technique of detection, of ultrasound imaging, does not allow for distinguishing the areas suspected of cancer, it simply maps the prostate, but cancer may be present in areas not biopsied, and therefore “false negative” results are increased by up to 30%. Fusion biopsy, by providing greater diagnostic accuracy, allows the patient to be referred to specific treatments and minimally invasive surgical interventions that offer greater accuracy in the results
