NBC News Featured Research Work on Molecular Imaging and Targeted Biopsy
NBC News featured the research work by Dr. Baowei Fei and his team. The technology that was developed in his research lab is called molecular imaging directed, 3D ultrasound-guided biopsy, which improved upon 2D systems by allowing for earlier detection of potentially cancerous cells in the prostate. The new technology has been evaluated by an early phase clinical trial and the clinical finds were published Journal of Urology (Fei et al, Feasibility and Initial Results: Fluciclovine Positron Emission Tomography/Ultrasound Fusion Targeted Biopsy of Recurrent Prostate Cancer. Journal of Urology. 2019;202(2):413-421). For more information, read the PDF file of the clinical paper or visit the following website for the NBC news.
