Prostate Biopsy

The prostate biopsy involves taking out small samples of the tissue of the prostate (the gland that produces the fluid which transports sperm) with a find needle. The cells from the sample are then examined under a microscope to see if they are cancerous.

1. Which doctor should I consult for a Prostate Biopsy?

You should consult an Urologist or a General physician.

2. What is an abnormal test result?

Abnormal test results may indicate:

Prostate cancer - Presence of cancer cells in Microscopic examination of tissue sample.

Abnormal non cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia).

3. What is a Robotic Biopsy System?

A robotic system, which can perform accurate biopsy of the prostate, would indeed eliminate many of the existing drawbacks of conventional prostate biopsy procedures.

The robots greatest contribution would be accuracy. It would be capable of delivering a biopsy needle to a predefined point in the prostate with an error of less than 1 mm.

This procedure ensures a uniform standard in prostate biopsy which is independent of the urologists skills and experience.

The urologist could plan the trajectory of the needle so that a chosen biopsy protocol is followed closely and consistently.

The system also allows the ultrasound based 3D model of the prostate to be magnified and rotated to aid in the definition and visualisation of would be biopsy points.

4. What are the advantages of Robotic Biopsy system?

Eliminate the existing drawbacks of conventional prostate biopsy procedures

Accuracy - The system is capable of delivering a biopsy needle to a predefined point in the prostate with an error of less than 1 mm

Multi-core biopsy - Another advantage of Robotic biopsy system is the possibility of performing multiple-core biopsy with just a single puncture point. The possibility of infection with the biopsy needle passing through a non-sterile field increases with every additional puncture, which is reduced by robotic biopsy.
