Diagnostic Center for Disease: Prostate Biopsy Spreads Prostate Cancer Cells
Date:2/19/2008

, causing cells to become weakened, disabled and die through a process called apoptosis.

This protocol is unique to the Diagnostic Center for Disease(TM). The Center's success with the MRI-S scan is further magnified by de-selecting men with an elevated PSA who don't have prostate cancer but rather have prostatitis, a non-bacterial inflammatory disease; the primary reason PSA rises. In these instances, the Center's physicians encourage the use of an internationally patented formula to decrease and/or normalize the PSA in patients without evidence of prostate cancer. While the literature suggests that all men will get prostate cancer if they live long enough, there is no reason to accelerate the process or undergo a premature biopsy, where the patient assumes all of the risk. To reiterate, a 3.0 Tesla MRI-S scan creates a roadmap to guide targeted biopsies to the specific region of interest while avoiding areas that fail to exhibit the "fingerprint" of disease. At the Diagnostic Center for Disease(TM), physicians recognize that better imaging enables an improved opportunity to diagnose disease while ensuring a better, more predictable outcome.

A recent case of a 71-year-old man illustrates the benefit of the 3.0 Telsa MRI -S. In 1997, his PSA was measured at 3.7 ng/ml. Presumed to be normal, the PSA was not tested again until 2001, when it was 7.2 ng/ml-well above the 4.0 ng/ml level of concern. A biopsy using a traditional ultrasound evaluation resulted in eight negative cores. The following year, the patient's PSA was 11.5 ng/ml. This time, in addition to the gray scale ultrasound, physicians used color flow doppler (CFD) to isolate areas of blood flow, important to prostate cancer growth. Despite the use of CFD to target areas of interest, the biopsy results were once again negative. Frustrated, the patient turned to the 3.0 T MRI -S scan. Despite a lack of evidence for cancer on the physical examination of the prostate, the scan located a discreet,
