VIDEO - ‘Yes, we scan!’

Yesterday, in his presentation at TEDxMaastricht, Dr. Jelle Barentsz shared his vision for a day when prostate cancer is accurately diagnosed by MRI and specialists the world over can use e-communication to share patient information and develop treatment plans. Because prostate MRI is not widely available, current prostate cancer diagnosis consists of a blood test and followed by 12 needles inserted through the rectum for a biopsy. With Barentsz’s new MRI technology and treatment planning methods, men everywhere will be breathing a sigh of relief.
