Brooksville, Florida (June 20, 2018) – Oak Hill Hospital is proud to introduce a powerful new MRI solution for targeted biopsy of the prostate. Through our recent adoption of the Artemis fusion biopsy system, we can offer a greatly improved biopsy option for many patients with elevated and/or rising PSA levels.
Targeted MRI/ultrasound biopsy is becoming the new standard in prostate care, and Oak Hill Hospital is pleased to offer this powerful solution to our patients.
Artemis is the revolutionary imaging & 3D navigation system that provides a complete prostate biopsy management platform. The system has the ability to take information available in MRI and use it in conjunction with your standard ultrasound guided biopsy.
“This is another step in Oak Hill Hospital’s commitment to provide our community with the latest diagnostic technology available,” said Leanne Salazar, Chief Nursing Officer of Oak Hill Hospital.
Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer. Oak Hill Hospital’s introduction of MRI fusion prostate biopsy will improve diagnostic accuracy and overall personalized standard of care.
