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.

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.

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.
