ScanMed Launches Wearable Prostate/Pelvic MRI Coil
ScanMed has introduced its Procure device, the first noninvasive, wearable prostate/pelvic MRI coil to hit the market, the Omaha, Neb., devicemaker announced Tuesday.
The size of broom handle, Procure is a dedicated, diaper-like MRI coil that positions antennae as closely as possible to the prostate and penis.
It is inserted directly into the rectum, captures diagnostic images and allows for biopsy.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, according to the National Cancer Institute. — Jason Scott
