Early detection can help to cure cancer more easily and effective
In the case of aggressive tumors (Gleason-Score greater than 6) or high PSA scores (above 10 ng/ml), additional examinations will reveal possible spreading outside of the prostate.
Possible procedures include:
• Bone Scans
• Computer Tomography (CT)
• Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT)
• Lymph node dissection for microscopic examination
• Choline Positron Emissions Tomography (Choline PET)
All these procedures help to decide whether the disease is confined to the prostate, and whether a local treatment defined to the prostate, can be recommended.
