Date:6/19/2012

NEW YORK, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- More precise prostate cancer diagnostics could be right around the corner, thanks to evolving MRI capabilities. Netherlands MRI and Urogenital disease specialist, Dr. Jelle Barentsz, is making significant headway in improving MRI technology to accurately diagnose and stage prostate cancer tumors with a success rate of 90 percent.

Detected through a simple blood test, a spike in PSA level is typically the first indicator of the potential presence of prostate cancer. A prostate cancer biopsy is then performed through a series of 12, sometimes painful, needle insertions. Despite these procedures, current prostate cancer staging abilities are somewhat limited and the needle biopsies do not always clearly define the tumor's boundaries.

Dr. David Samadi, leading U.S. prostate cancer surgeon, details how Dr. Barentsz's MRI advancements could significantly improve the ability to accurately define the degree of a man's prostate cancer. "With current diagnostics I don't get a perfect picture of the prostate cancer until I see it first-hand during robotic prostate surgery. The microscopic clarity of Dr. Barentsz's new MRI technology may soon afford the opportunity to truly see the prostate, the cancer, and its borders before surgery is performed," Dr. Samadi explained.

More accurate MRI imaging has the potential to improve prostate cancer diagnosis in two major ways. First, needle biop
