The Prostate Cancer Center of Excellence at Pacific Urology is the only center in Northern California to offer MRI fusion biopsy for early prostate cancer detection and Gold Seed targeted radiation for prostate cancer treatment.
These technologies, combined with a team of expert oncologists and urologists working together, enable our Center to deliver the most complete prostate cancer care available.
Prostate Cancer Diagnosis
Prostate cancer is the abnormal growth of prostate cells. Prostate cancer can be a very slow growing type to a very fast growing type of cancer. Once the grade and stage are known, your urologist will discuss all the treatment options.Learn More
MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy
MRI technology along with ultrasound imaging is used to create a real-time, 3D map of the prostate during biopsy, allowing for more accurate targeting of the prostate, resulting in earlier diagnosis of prostate cancer.Learn More
Gold Seed Targeted Radiation
Pacifc Urology uses gold seeds that are placed near the prostate during treatment. The Gold Seed helps to precisely mark and target the radiation therapy. This type of therapy is used in treatment of prostate cancer.Learn More
