John - I thought it might be Dr Barentsz at Nijmegen. (And another search for images on Google would suggest that the man I saw on the TV was indeed Dr B)
If you are right that they have stopped Combidex altogether, then I wonder if the programme I saw was a repeat or if they ahve started it again or started it using something different(or cheaper)
Hopefully I (and as many of us as possible) will stay in the zero club for ever, but should we not then it would be nicer to think that there was still such an accurate tool available.
Odd you say it's stopped becasue on the 16th March 2011 the Dutch Prime Minister
opened the new "Prostate MR Centre of Excellence" at St Radboud's Universirty Medical Center in Nijmegen where Dr Barentsz is based.
further "reading" see the medical centre's info in English:www.umcn.nl/Research/Departments/Radiology/Pages/default.aspx
There is a video (in Dutch) at the site, but you might find it informative, even though they only show a few short clips of the imaging. (The reporter uses the anaolgy of how Dutch Customs officers use scanners to search suspect containers for weapons and explosives)
And you can all enjoy listening to them speaking Dutch.
Key comments by Dr B in the report are that he can use the new scanner to more accurately aim biopsy needles and also to find mets if they are bigger than 3mm in diameter.
The report also says that he has recently been given a subsidy and that this will allow the scanning procedures to be "exported" to other hospitals in Holland.
Hope this is interesting.
