Hi Bri,

I noticed it was on.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to say.

Thanks for posting your message, I was thinking about doing it myself so people wouldn't miss it.

Well spotted Bri,

Didn't even notice we didn't put the time in! You're more awake than me.

On now Thanks Bruian.

 

Early part seems to suggest the earlier it is caught, and presumably dealt with, the better.

 

Nice and simply put, easy to understand.  So far.

Thanks for this, I had not noticed this programme and have recorded it to watch.

 

Helpful to share this sort of info on here too.

Well worth watching. It was made at UCH and covers several types of cancer. Re PCa, it features 2 cases: one man undergoing diagnosis using the PROMIS trial and the other a patient undergoing treatment using HIFU.

Lucid explanations of the template biopsy technique and its benefits. Equally good coverage of HIFU. Useful viewing for anyone about to undergo diagnosis or facing treatment decisions.

This was a programme I'd been waiting to see.

What struck me most was seeing the use of MRI guided biopsies for men suspected of having PCa.

For years I have wondered why an MRI wasn't used as an accurate guide.

Cost I presume.


Interestingly, there was a discussion on this very treatment in August on YANANOW:

MRI & BIOPSIES

Interesting that the MRI result was unclear and it was the template biopsy that showed the man did not have PCa. It appears that a TRUS biopsy was not done to compare with the template biopsy.
