SUBJECT: MRI IMAGING OF THE PROSTATE & PRECISELY GUIDED BIOPSY

Mr. Benard will present  the newest capabilities and applications for their  Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems.  He will discuss the differences between MRI and CAT scans with data regarding recent advancements for MRI.  He will also elaborate on who should and who should not utilize MRI imaging. 

Perhaps the most important capability with these new MRI systems is the ability to use the image for greater precision in guiding the biopsy needle,  The use of these advanced tools for real time image analysis should return fewer negatives when there really is a prostate cancer tumor present. 

Invivio is a leader in the world of MRI applications and monitoring
