Typical prostate biopsies use ultrasound to guide surgeons to areas where cancer tends to form. If cancer is growing in another part of the prostate, it can be missed.

Upstate University Hospital urologist Srinivas Vourganti explains what men can expect from the UroNav and also gives us an overview of prostate cancer.
