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

Richard Bolton, 61, of Point Lookout, NY, a retired financial executive, learned of his prostate cancer diagnosis after he received a prostate fusion biopsy at LIJ in January.

With a high PSA, Mr. Bolton was referred to the Smith Institute for Urology for further testing. The consulting urologis
