What you need to know
- A new imaging technology called mpMRI has helped improve prostate cancer diagnosis and reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies men experience. However, the technology is expensive and not all men are suitable for it.
- Multiparametric ultrasound may be an alternative imaging technique to diagnose prostate cancer that is cheaper and suitable for more men than mpMRI.
- Professor Ahmed is running a clinical trial to compare multiparametric ultrasound against existing diagnostic techniques, to see if it could be used widely in the clinic.
