Urologists and radiologists trained on how to use mpMRI for prostate fusion biopsy using Watson and BiopSee at BAUS, Liverpool

Posted on Jul 18, 2018

Whilst the main conference floor was busy for OSL this year, it was the off shoot training course hosted by Professor Hashim Ahmed that proved to be most popular.

Christof Kastner consultant urologist from Addenbrooke’s also participated in demonstrating how to perform a fusion target biopsy procedure using the BiopSee fusion software where multi-parametric MR images are fused with ultrasound during biopsy for image guided biopsy – now regarded as the gold standard for prostate care for accurate biopsy targeting.

The ground-breaking Watson Nimbus software was installed on ten PC workstations that were used by the trainees to better understand and analyse the mpMRI images based on real clinical cases. Watson Nimbus software automatically analyses mpMRI images in just 3 minutes, and helps guide and assist clinicians identify suspicious malignant lesions, through a colour map laid on the MR images – called the Malignancy Attention Index MAI. The MAIs are then transferred to fusion biopsy systems.

This ground-breaking new automated technology can benefit the often time consuming and patchy information available after the patient’s MR scan session. Watson has been shown to have excellent correlation with clinical biopsy results, and can help speed up the time from scan to biopsy to therapy or to no treatment, resulting in less anxiety for patients.
