The exam is performed with or without an endorectal coil on new generation scanners, providing high resolution anatomic imaging along with functional parameters using Dynamic Contrast Enhancement, Diffusion Weighted Imaging, Spectroscopy (Metabolite Imaging), and post processing software with computer aided detection.
Men travel from all over the USA and overseas to our center when they are concerned about or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The exam is performed without an endorectal coil and provides high resolution anatomic imaging along with functional parameters. After the scan is complete, the images are then transferred to application workstation where post processing software (with computer aided detection) is used to complete the read. A highly detailed report, including color images, is provided to the referring physician or urologist once the scan is complete. These images are immediately made available using the Partners physician portal.
Dr Richard Goldberg is the exclusive reader of prostate cases for Partners Imaging Centers. He has practiced body radiology for more than 30 years and has a special interest in prostate imaging. Men travel from all of the USA and overseas to Partners Imaging Center in Sarasota when they are concerned about or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Partners works with a number of local urologists that perform targeted biopsies of the prostate. In some cases, Dr Goldberg will contour the prostate and select regions of interest (ROI) so that a more targeted approach to a biopsy can take place using a fusion technique.
Partners accepts most insurances and can offer a self-pay price if needed.
