Hear how MRI saved this patient’s life.
78 year old Bill Whelan’s physician told him “there was a 98% chance he did NOT have prostate cancer.” Dr. Steve Sweriduk took one look at his mpMRI scan and identified a VERY significant tumor that was in fact, aggressive cancer. Had he not had the MRI, the cancer would very likely continue to progress.

Multi-parametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) greatly improves the accuracy of the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. Compared with alternative tests that can be intrusive and painful, mpMRI is a standard MRI that requires no endorectal coil. The improved accuracy of tumor detection also potentially reduces the number of biopsies needed.
