Diagnostic Testing

A diagnostic test is a medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. Some diagnostic tests are included within a simple physical examination that requires only simple tools in the hands of a skilled practitioner, performed in-office. Other tests require elaborate equipment used by medical technologists or the use of a sterile operating environment. A radiologist interprets or "reads" the images obtained during a diagnostic exam and reports their findings and impression or diagnosis.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in males, affecting approximately 1 in 7 men. In fact, the American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017, more than 161,000 new cases will be diagnosed. Because it is such a common and potentially fatal disease, early detection and prompt treatment is critical. MRI exams are currently the best non-invasive tool for more accurate detection of prostate cancer and assist in the development of the appropriate treatment plan. DMG’s Radiologists explain why MRI’s are a preferred screening option for prostate cancer.
