Ultrasound helps pinpoint treatment for prostate:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A new ultrasound technique is helping doctors to treat patients suffering from prostate cancer more accurately with tiny radioactive implants. The technique is used to determine whether the pubic arch bone will hamper placement of the implant. Researchers at the University of Washington and Seattle Prostate Institute in the US, who developed the ultrasound approach, said that it will eventually allow the patient to be monitored during the treatment procedure and will be less expensive than the currently used CT scans.
