Dr Desai has extensive experience in using the iSR’obot™ Mona Lisa for prostate biopsy. This has MRI-ultrasound fusion capability, providing visualisation and enabling targeting of the region of interest. Using the UroFusion software we create a custom biopsy plan for an individual patient. Based on the biopsy plan, the robotic system then guides the biopsy needle’s positioning and depth to the precise targeted core location. The accurate targeting helps physicians to detect prostate cancer early.
In Australia, there are currently only four machines – one of them being at St Vincents Toowoomba. Watch the video below for more information on this procedure.
