Fusion Biopsy

Biopsia fusion HC Marbella

This is the most advanced diagnostic technique for accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer, in both early and advanced stages.

Magnetic resonance imaging offers a higher resolution than ultrasound. At HC Marbella our 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanner allows us to perform multiparametric MRI scans with improved image quality.
The image is merged with the ultrasound image at the time of biopsy, to visualize where the lesion is located and obtain greater biopsy reliability.


Benefits of HC Marbella’s fusion biopsy

At HC Marbella, our state-of-the-art equipment, the BK 3000 fusion ultrasound system enables:


Higher quality imaging with improved scope
  • Real-time, ultra-high-definition prostate imaging.
    This enables visualisation of suspicious areas by identifying regions of interest, leading to more accurate and safer biopsies in a shorter time.

  • Improved lesion selection with fusion-guided biopsies
    The combination of MRI and real-time ultrasound is designed to enable more accurate, targeted prostate biopsies.


It is effective
  • It detects the presence of prostate cancer in more than 95% of cases.
  • It always biopsies suspicious areas, enabling access to areas of the prostate that are difficult to reach.
  • It enables the diagnosis of 30% more aggressive tumours than with a transrectal biopsy with which 1 in 3 prostate cancers escape.


  • It decreases the risk of infection and bleeding and the need for repeat biopsy.


Rapid recovery
  • The procedure is performed under deep sedation, without the need for admission to hospital.
  • The patient recovers within 24 hours.



What does the procedure involve?


resosnacia multiparametrica

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging enables us to locate suspicious areas of the tumour.
ecográfia transrectal

A real-time transrectal ultrasound is performed and fused with MRI images.
biopsia próstata

Samples are taken from the suspicious areas indicated by the MRI, with mapping of the entire prostate to guarantee effective sampling of the tumour area. This procedure is performed via the perineum.
