The catheter contains those components, which are usually found in a conventional MRI scanner, only that they are miniaturized to less than 2 millimeters in size. In 2006 TopSpin Medical began to develop its technology for imaging prostate cancer by an integrated endo-rectal MRI and ultrasound probe.
