New Probes for Prostate Cancer Patients

Men with suspected prostate cancer will be more accurately diagnosed thanks to two new ultrasound probes donated to the Urology Service.

Thanks to generous donations from the community, Flinders Foundation raised $70,000 during its June 2017 Prostate Cancer Appeal to purchase two endocavity bi-plane transducer probes for the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network Urology Service.

This equipment will allow specialists to biopsy men using more modern techniques, and provide a more complete view of the prostate for more accurate diagnosis.

The new probes were presented to the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network Urology Service at a special presentation attended by many generous Flinders Foundation supporters, SALHN CEO Michael O’Keefe, PCFA Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse Sally Sara, and patient Neville.
