MRI-Ultrasound Fusion Prostate Biopsy from Johns Hopkins

An excellent 3-minute video from Dr. H. Ballentine Carter, Professor of Urology and Oncology at Johns Hopkins, describes the use of MRI to view the prostate one day prior to performing a standard ultrasound-guided biopsy. The video speaks for itself and can be viewed at the following link.

This technique is also being used at the University of Texas Southwestern. See the following link for a complete description of how it is done and their positive results as compared with standard biopsy techniques.
