Urologist in Adelaide - Prostate Biopsy

Urologist in Adelaide - Prostate Biopsy

Urologist in Adelaide, Nick Brook using the Mona Lisa Biobot


Robotic prostate biopsy

In January 2017, Nick Brook organised for a 6 month free trial of the Biobot robotic biopsy system at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. This is the first such system in South Australia, and was only the third in use in Australia.

The system uses a patient's MRI scan and fuses this with a real-time ultrasound of the prostate to enable targeting of suspicious areas in the prostate.


Increased accuracy of diagnosis leads to increased confidence that the correct treatment can be chosen.

Software controls the robotic arm, to ensure that the needles are placed in the correct position for biopsy
