Urologists commit to introduction of MRI scans before biopsy

At the annual conference of the British Association of Urological Surgeons’ (BAUS) annual conference in June, Prostate Cancer UK reports that there was agreement “mpMRI could benefit men and want to see it happen, agreeing this needs to be in a controlled and consistent manner. It was also great… to receive a commitment from BAUS and the urologist community … in making sure that roll out of pre-biopsy mp-MRI is made possible within the correct parameters”.

Tackle has been at the forefront of calling for MRI scans before biopsy. As one delegate commented at our conference in June this year to great applause: “Biopsy without MRI is butchery”.
