We’ll begin with an overview of prostate cancer facts and explain some of the traditional screening and testing protocol for prostate cancer. Then, we’ll move into understanding prostate MRI basics from a clinician’s view. Next, we’ll explain MR/Fusion prostate biopsy, discussing what it is and why it helps. Finally, we’ll wrap up with a few case studies showing examples and best practices.
