Prostate MRI Scans in South Jersey

What Is A Prostate MRI?

A prostate MRI is a type of MRI scan that utilizes specialized tools and technology to collect advanced images of the prostate. The prostate is responsible for removing urine from the bladder as well as seminal fluid production. A prostate MRI can help diagnose infections and detect prostate cancer.

How Does A Prostate MRI Work?

South Jersey Radiology uses the world’s most advanced 3T MRI unit to perform prostate MRIs. Diagnostic clarity is of the utmost importance in determining customized treatment options for prostate cancer.  The new 3T MRI, known as the Skyra, is one of the most advanced MRI systems in the world and is only available at SJRA in the South New Jersey region. The Skyra images the prostate with the highest clarity possible and provides views of the gland in thin sections and from multiple directions. The Skyra also eliminates the need for the invasive, uncomfortable endorectal coil, generating the best images possible with an external torso coil.

At SJRA, your scan will be interpreted by a specially trained physician with expertise in prostate MRI.

How Do I Prepare For A Prostate MRI?

A prostate MRI scan doesn't require any special preparation. You are allowed to continue your normal medications and maintain your normal diet. Based on the patient's medical history, SJRA may ask the patient to maintain a liquid diet for 12 – 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you have any questions, reach out to your referring physician or our team of experts here.
