Could 80,000 Cancer Diagnoses be Missed in 90-days?
Busch Center Provides Safe Alternative for Men to Remain Proactive with Prostate MRI Screening
"The key to successful cancer treatment is to catch cancer at its earliest stage," says Dr. Joseph J. Busch, MD Oncological Radiologist and Founder of the Busch Center, "That's why an accurate and timely diagnosis is critical."
Over 22 million screening tests for five common tumors for 80,000 patients may be missed or delayed during the 3-month period from early March through early June because of disruptions to health care caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Of these 22,600 cases are prostate cancer.1, the second most common cancer among men and the second leading cause of men's cancer in the United States, according to an April report by Iqvia Institute (https://www.iqvia.com/-/
Fortunately, Busch Center is open for all procedures including proactive prostate MRI screenings, Targeted MRI In-bore Biopsies, and non-invasive prostate cancer treatments called Focal Laser Ablation and the TULSA Procedure. Busch Center's 3T MR machine alongside Dr. Busch's expert staff with years of experience combine ensure patients get the most accurate results in the most comfortable and safe environment.
Busch Center is a private practice with private waiting rooms and restrooms for patients and their loved ones. Every room is sanitized between patient visits. Patients at Busch Center also benefit from a Visible Radiologist, Dr. Busch, who sits with each patient to review their scans and procedures, answers questions, and makes recommendations.
"It's tragic what prostate cancer, when left undetected, can do to a man – both physically and emotionally,"
