Precise, personalized care starts here
Early and accurate diagnosis leads to clear options for treatment. Unfortunately, standard TRUS prostate biopsies are often imprecise, with the ability to detect only 30-41% of cancers.1 Philips offers a comprehensive prostate cancer diagnosis solution in utilizing MRI/US fusion that is in use at 22 of the 25 of the top cancer hospitals in the US.2 This unified, orchestrated approach to prostate cancer diagnosis and care has significant benefits for clinical teams and for patients.
This more targeted approach can benefit patients by potentially reducing instances of biopsy-related hospitalization, decreasing likelihood of sepsis, and most importantly, avoiding the need for repeat biopsies.3 Whichever method is chosen, ensuring that patients have the highest quality care possible can be complicated given the many specialties involved in the prostate cancer journey, such as urology, radiology, pathology, genomics and oncology. Inefficient and disconnected workflows further complicate the picture.
