We believe this is the most powerful imaging technology available and will allow our urologists to provide the highest standard of care to our patients".
Dr. A. Dev Mally, Urologic Oncologist at Advanced Urology, adds "After an extensive assessment of available technologies, we believe the ExactVu micro-ultrasound system is state-of-the-art in terms of targeted biopsy solutions. Our urologists can now get even more accurate biopsies using the highest resolution modalities to enable the fastest, most detailed imaging of the prostate. We are especially happy to have performed the first FusionVu™ micro-ultrasound/MRI fusion-guided biopsy in Atlanta and will be performing thousands more micro-ultrasound targeted biopsies annually as we aim to best screen for and detect prostate cancer."
