29 MHz High Resolution Micro-Ultrasound: Improving Real-Time Targeting of Prostate Biopsies – Summary:

Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS, Medical Director for the Carolina Urologic Research Center and a urologist at the Atlantic Urology Clinics in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, discusses the use of a 29 MHz micro-ultrasound (MUS) in targeting suspicious regions during prostate biopsy. He explains how the MUS can expedite time to diagnosis through improved real-time visualization, notes the short 15-case learning curve of the device, and discusses studies demonstrating improved negative predictive value and sensitivity of MUS compared to MRI.
