Prostate Biopsy Procedure: Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) and FUSION

Using the information we have regarding your PSA blood test, MRI scan and DRE (digital rectal examination) you are being offered a prostate biopsy procedure. This is so small tissue samples can be taken and examined under a microscope for the presence of cancer. We use two very similar methods according to what your MRI scan has shown. The clinician will inform you on the day of your biopsies which procedure we will undertake. Biopsies of the prostate are advised when there is a suspicion of prostate cancer.
