A Safer Approach to Prostate Biopsy
At UConn Health, the urologists are using a safer technique to perform a prostate biopsy. The new method, called a transperineal prostate biopsy, is not only safer but is also more precise. Instead of passing through the rectum, the needle passes just outside of and past the rectum to collect the tissue sample.
By avoiding the rectum entirely, this greatly reduces the risk of a patient developing sepsis.
