The project in a nutshell

Testing whether using a new form of ultrasound to measure tissue stiffness can be used to accurately show the location of prostate cancer tumours and tell whether it's aggressive or not.

Why we funded it

Prostate biopsies, which are currently used to assess location of prostate cancer could be guided by this type of ultrasound to make the results more accurate and less invasive. This type of imaging could also be used to help define risk.
