North Shore-LIJ's New Image Fusion-Guided Biopsy Improves Accuracy of Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Led by Art Rastinehad, DO, director of interventional urologic oncology at LIJ Medical Center, the study’s results are impressive.

“We can now see cancers we couldn’t visualize in the past,” said Dr. Rastinehad, who unveiled the new prostate imaging system at a news conference Thursday, May 2 at LIJ. “Traditional techniques only sample the bottom part of the prostate, but 30 percent of cancers are outside this zone.”

Here’s how the ultrasound-guided fusion biopsy works: an electro-magnetic navigation system, similar to a GPS tracking device, is placed over the patient’s hip to locate the needle position and guide the biopsy. The MRI and ultrasound images are aligned and o
