Prostate cancer is cause by malignant cells developing in prostate tissue. Common warning signs include problems with urination (sudden urges, pain, blood in urine, difficulty urinating), experiencing pain in the back and pelvis, and feeling tired/dizzy. There are different tests to diagnose prostate cancer, including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood screen, the digital rectal exam (DRE), prostate ultrasound and biopsy. Prostate screenings are recommended for men beginning at age 50.

Prostate Ultrasound

Examines the prostate gland using ultrasound to create an image of the prostate and surrounding tissues. A transducer (also called a probe) sends sound waves through the wall of the rectum and into the prostate and surrounding tissue. A computer analyzes the wave patterns (called echoes) as they bounce off the organs and converts them into detailed images for our Radiologist to analyze.

Prostate PET

The Prostate Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan pinpoints lesions in the prostate using a radiotracer that is manufactured onsite. This exam identifies cancer t hat is of ten missed by current stand-of-care imaging techniques. It is for men who are initially diagnosed with prostate cancer at risk for metastatic disease or who were previously treated but have developed biochemical recurrence as shown by a rising PSA. It is FDA approved, covered by insurance, and requires no preauthorization for patients with Medicare.

Bone Scan

When prostate cancer spreads, it often spreads to the bones first. Patients receive a radiotracer injection that settles in damaged areas of bone throughout the body. For patients with a high likelihood of high-risk prostate cancer, the Bone Scan is the standard, guideline-recommended test to look for bony metastasis.

Prostate MRI (Coming Soon!)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic fie ld and computer to produce detailed pictures of water molecule motion (called water diffusion) and blood flow (called perfusion imaging) with the prostate. The Prostate MRI uses three MRI techniques to help your doctor differentiate diseased versus normal prostate tissue. It can also be used to evaluate other prostate problems including infection, enlargement, abnormal conditions present at birth, or complications after pelvic surgery.
