An accurate prostate tumour diagnosis and appropriate treatment depend on the ability to efficiently perform the biopsy on specific areas of the prostate. By fusing the MRI and live ultrasound images, the doctors at Medanta can more effectively perform a targeted biopsy of select tissue. The biopsy results then lead to a more accurate diagnosis along with better information to help you make a smarter, more individualised choice about your treatment.
Preparing for a TRUS biopsy
During the treatment
After cleaning the area, the doctor will insert a thin ultrasound probe into the rectum. The doctor will identify the area to be numbed with the help of images obtained by the help of sound waves. Once the area becomes numb, the doctor will pull out the required tissues. Generally, 10 to 12 samples are taken and the procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes.
