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

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
