Prostate cancer can no longer hide. To increase the rate of cancer detection, Sanjay Gandhi PGI has established Pet Scan Guided Biopsy. This technique would make it possible to take a biopsy directly from the tumor.

Experts say that in the old technique of prostate cancer, the cancer could not be detected in one to two percent, which required repeated biopsies. So far, successful biopsies have been done in about 15 cases with this new method. This is the first such institute in the state, where the facility of robotic biopsy has now become available. Chandigarh PGI and AIIMS were available in Delhi only. Experts say that the biggest advantage of doing a biopsy with this technique is that it is almost painless. It only has a slight prickling feel like an injection. It also takes less than half the time compared to the old method of biopsy.
