Diagnosis &
Treatment

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer.

The Latest Technology In
Diagnosis And Treatment

Cancer care is a continually evolving field of medicine, with new discoveries and developments of increasingly effective treatments that can extend life expectancy and improve quality of life. Rex & UNC are at the forefront of these new discoveries and utilize the latest technologies to diagnose and treat prostate cancer:

  1. 3 Tesla MRI - the most powerful magnetic resonance imaging scanner available for faster and more accurate scanning for tumors
  2. TomoTherapy® - a revolutionary approach that treats tumors one layer at a time, adjusting the intensity and direction of radiation beams in real time
  3. Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) - for precise targeting of radiation to specific tumor sites
  4. Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) - for accurate radiation placement and reduced exposure to healthy tissue
  5. CyberKnife® - a non-invasive alternative to surgery to treat prostate tumors
  6. Prostate brachytherapy - places devices containing radiation in the prostate gland, close to the cancer cells, causing less damage to healthy tissue nearby
  7. High-dose radiation therapy - limits the chance of recurrence
  8. Robot-assisted surgery - minimally invasive approach that potentially speeds up the surgical recovery process, with less pain, bleeding and scarring
