Targeted MR/US Fusion Transperineal Prostate Biopsy

Asheville Urological Physicians are pleased to offer Targeted MR/US Fusion Transperineal Prostate Biopsy at AdventHealth Hospital and Pardee Hospital.  

The Targeted MR/US Fusion Transperineal Prostate Biopsy is a two step process.  It begins with the Urologist ordering a MRI of the Prostate.  The images are interpreted by a Radiologist who will identify areas suspicious for cancer.  The Radiologist submits his findings to the Urologist, and the Urologist will relay the results to the patient and make plans with the surgery scheduling team to schedule the case with the patient.

The prostate fusion transperineal biopsy uses both MRI and ultrasound images to map the area around the prostate as accurately as possible.  This can reveal irregular tissues that might not show up on an ultrasound alone.  To obtain the prostate tissue for the biopsy, the Urologist puts a needle into the prostate through the skin behind the testicles (perineum).  They take a number of samples, which are sent to the pathology laboratory.  The procedure is done with intervenous sedation (twilight) and the transperineal method greatly reduces any possibility of surgical infection.
