It’s Movember, and that is not a typo!  Every November, the Movember Foundation encourages men to grow mustaches and pave the way for conversations about men’s health.  Gender remains one of the most consistent predictors of life expectancy, and worldwide, men die an average of six years earlier than women.  The Movember Foundation currently focuses on four points of men’s health: mental health, physical inactivity, testicular cancer and prostate cancer.  Prostate cancer is currently the second most common cancer in men worldwide and the number of cases is expected to almost double to 1.7 million cases by 2030.

While we can’t prevent these cases from developing, we at Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology perform the most precise imaging for our patients.  A prostate MRI provides the clearest, most detailed images of the soft-tissue structures of the prostate, and is used as a screening and diagnostic tool for prostate cancer patients. This test is non-invasive and does not expose patients to any radiation.
