Eden Prairie Firm Wins Approval to Sell Prostate Imaging Technology

By

ProUroCare says its device can help doctors detect possible prostate problems and map changes to the prostate over time… Dr. Matthew Toffefson, a Mayo Clinic urologist who said he is not familiar with the ProUroScan, nonetheless agreed with Weiss that there is a "definite" need for better diagnostic technology. "Really, right now, we don't have many tools to image the prostate," he said, noting that physicians are limited to conventional ultrasound and MRI. "And neither one is very reliable to identify nodules within the prostate gland."
