2020 MAR 19 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Daily -- Current study results on Oncology - Prostate Cancer have been published. According to news originating from Toronto, United States, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, “High resolution micro-ultrasound (micro-u/s) is a novel technology that permits visualization of lesions suspicious for prostate cancer. The resolution of 70 m, that of a prostatic duct, means that alterations in ductal anatomy and cellular density are readily apparent.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Toronto, “Initial experience in multiple centers comparing it to mpMRI suggests that the sensitivity for clinically significant prostate cancer is comparable or superior. Specificity is comparable or mildly reduced.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Micro-u/s is an inexpensive, accessible and convenient alternative to mpMRI for imaging and diagnosing prostate cancer.”
