Building a Prostate Biopsy Service Line

with Dr. Jamil Muasher

In this episode, Dr. Aaron Fritts and Dr. Jose Silva invite interventional radiologist Dr. Jamil Muasher to highlight the potential that interventional radiologists possess in offering prostate biopsy work alongside Urology colleagues.

Given the advancement in MRI guidance, the discussion addresses the opportunity for radiologists to step in and provide crucial expertise to optimize patient outcomes. Dr. Muasher talks about his approach of using an MR imaging to guide the biopsy procedure. He further expresses importance in understanding the grading, reading, interpreting systems like Prostate Imaging-Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) and significant experience needed for accurate results. The doctors also explain various biopsy procedures, details about post-procedure care and follow-ups, and observations about billing for the services.
