Current and Emerging Imaging Tools for Improving Risk Assessment, Selection of Patients for Biopsy, and Tissue Sampling – Summary:

Sangeet Ghai, MD, FRCR, Associate Professor of Abdominal Imaging at Toronto General Hospital, outlines improvements in ultrasound technology that could significantly improve real-time prostate cancer diagnostics. He discusses several studies demonstrating the diagnostic capability of the 29Mhz microultrasound, how it compares to mpMRI, and how this new technology could streamline prostate cancer diagnostics by reducing the need to conduct MRI fusion biopsies.

About The 4th Global Summit on Precision Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer:

The Global Summit on Precision Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer is a multi-day, multi-disciplinary forum dedicated to informing healthcare stakeholders about topics including in-vitro fluid- and tissue-based molecular diagnostics, novel observation strategies such as active surveillance, and novel therapeutic interventions. Along with this forum’s efforts to form a consensus on the future of prostate diagnostics and precision care, it aims to create an educational and research strategy for its realization. Dr. Ghai presented this lecture during the 4th iteration of this Summit in 2019.
