Targeted Prostate Cancer Biopsy and Cancer Treatment Earns Acceptance From Nation's Top Prostate Specialists
Date:1/16/2009

TargetScan(R) Technology passes 3,500-procedure milestone as the system becomes available in more medical centers and private practices across the country

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- To date, more than 3,500 prostate biopsies and subsequent cancer treatment procedures have been conducted using the proprietary TargetScan(R) technology, adopted by prostate specialists in search of more effective cancer treatments with fewer side effects.

The original technology was introduced in 2005 and is now used at the nation's top urologic centers, including Washington University, Duke University, Emory University, New York University and the University of Michigan - and is being adopted in private practice by urologists interested in bringing state-of-the-art care to their offices.

"TargetScan is an excellent tool that reliably defines where cancer exists in the prostate and maps the prostate in a reproducible manner so I may accurately follow a patient's progress and cancer status over time," explains James K. Bennett, M.D., a leading urologist in private practice in Atlanta. "This is the future of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment for men who seek alternatives to extreme surgical treatments and negative si
