Future Tests for Prostate Cancer

Tests like the PCA3, Power Doppler Ultrasound and 3T MRI are all very promising and based on a lot of research.  There are a few other tests I’ve found that might be of interest.  I haven’t found much research on them, and they are probably not yet available in the USA outside of trials or studies.

I’m off to New York City for a power doppler ultrasound.  More next week.
