UroNav Fusion Biopsy System

Targeted MR/ultrasound biopsy is poised to become a new standard in prostate care. This technique fuses pre-biopsy MR images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images in real time, for excellent delineation of the prostate and suspicious lesions, as well as clear visualization of the biopsy needle.

The fusion of the MR and ultrasound images uses electromagnetic tracking, similar to your car’s GPS system. A small, localized electromagnetic field is generated and used in conjunction with a navigation sensor mounted to the trans-rectal ultrasound probe to determine the location and spatial orientation of the biopsy device. A sophisticated algorithm maintains the fusion of MR and ultrasound images – even when the patient moves.
