At CMC Hospital Dubai we also offer an additional prostate screening package that leverages some of the latest research from preventative cancer research programmes.
The package includes:
In this unique package, which is only offered by CMC Hospital Dubai, in addition to the globally recognised PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test you will also be screened via a MRI (without contrast). MRI which stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a combination of magnetic field and radio waves to create a detailed picture of the inside of your body. It’s completely non-invasive and does not involve radiation.
In the ‘REIMAGINE study published in the British Medical Journal (BMH), a study carried out at UCL (University College London Hospitals), UK indicates that using a 20 to 30 minute Non contrasted MRI scan can be utilised to screen men for prostate cancer. The MRI picked up some serious cancers that would have been missed by a PSA alone. In the study, more than half the men whose cancer was picked up on MRI had low PSA test scores below 3ng/ml is considered normal.
It should be noted that the REIMAGINE study is part of an ongoing research programme, and as such the initial study is not without it’s limitations which can be reviewed here.
However, the MRI screening is this package is provided IN ADDITION to a consultation, and the globally recognised PSA Blood test, so you can be confident that your prostate screening is fully comprehensive.
The cost of the MRI & Prostate Cancer Screening Package is only AED 2300 at Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital.
