Tests for Prostate cancer offered at LDC:
MRI screening for prostate cancer.
Prostate PSA screenings key to cancer prevention; test still holds value despite recent studies
It's not surprising that there is confusion surrounding the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Recommendations for when men should have it vary and results are often unclear.
Prostate DCE- MRI at LDC
Lexington Diagnostic Center & OPEN MRI has acquired the capability of providing MRI of the prostate to demonstrate the presence and localization or the absence of the cancer. The test utilizes an MRI of the pelvis area with and without contrast enhancement using a surface coil and computer assisted diagnosis (CAD).
