Let me loop around to the beginning again------was originally looking for any info on this procedure as a viable option-or not. I had my friend's situation wrong here: he is not newly diagnosed as I had posted. he had blood in his rine, went for an exam, and his PSA came back at 14. Was given a 10-day course of antibiotics and it lowered it to 13. This guy's wife was asking about free PSA, etc., which I tried to answer for her. But she found Wheeler's site and asked me about it as an alternative to a biopsy, because somebody told them about the alleged risk of cancer spread, however small the odds. So, since they live in Delaware, I was trying to find out if it was worth a trip, but I didn't have enough info to give them. John's comprehensive post gave me enough to take back to her.

Hey John........that was my initial email back to her after she forwarded the situation; that with the PSA not going down in response to the course of AB, that a biopsy was warranted. She had stated that Wheeler's was "the only one in the world", an absolute which threw up a red flag initially. That's why I threw it out to the forum here. I since can see from your answer and others that the MRI-S with Tesla 3 is in fact available at more places around the country. Thanks again for your input. I cut and pasted your entire first post and sent it to her in an email so that she could digest it..........I'll see what she says and report back.
