Our office will be available to urgent Urological patients and our cancer patients. All patients with upcoming appointments are being contacted regarding

  1. deferring your appointment for a later date
  2. There are patients who will need to be seen in person, for which we will schedule to insure minimal contact with others
  3. or the possibly of a telemedicine appointment for concerns which require more immediate resolution, but not requiring an in person visit.
    Telemedicine appointments will be offered in lieu of in-person appointments when possible. Patients will be instructed on how to contact the office at a scheduled time to speak with one of our Medical Providers. This is a billable service and you and/or your insurance company will receive a bill regarding this service.

Targeted MRI/Ultrasound Fusion biopsy is the latest technology available for the detection and management of prostate cancer and Capital Urological Associates is proud to offer this new standard of care.

Historically, finding the exact location of cancer in a prostate gland has been a challenge. Conventional TRUS prostate biopsy techniques are referred to as “blind” biopsies since
physicians typically cannot easily view the specific location of any abnormal tissue. Now, using the revolutionary Artemis 3D imaging and navigation system, physicians are able to better identify and more accurately biopsy suspicious prostate cancer areas.

The MRI/Ultrasound Fusion (or MR/US Fusion) targeted biopsy procedure starts by using pre-exam MRI prostate images. These images are then fused with real-time ultrasound images to create a detailed 3D high-definition map of the prostate. This allows the physician to accurately target any visible lesions during the biopsy.

“It is a more precise way to look for suspicious areas,” explains urologist Dr. Eric Stockall of Capital Urological Associates. Patients recommended for this procedure are men who, typically, have elevated and/or rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels or those with a clinical concern for prostate cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men after skin cancer, and one in seven men will be diagnosed in his lifetime. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but with early detection, most men have a 5 year survival rate of 90%.

Capital Urological Associates introduction of the MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Prostate biopsy system is the latest breakthrough option in providing patients with improved diagnosis and accuracy in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
