I'm now scheduled for an MRI Scan of Pelvis after two-needle exams, is this a good better type to see if cancer has spread? My PSA has been ranging for 5 to 7+!

I had a MRI on my prostrate to determine if I needed a biopsy, which it did. Was told with a MRI, if a tumor was detected, the MRI would be helpful indicating the location. When the biopsy was performed, the doc would make sure to take a sample form that location. After the MRI, I was told the cancer had not spread from the prostrate, so obviously it was a good indicator of the extent of the cancer. My understanding is that the use of a MRI will be a standard procedure in the future. It’s all positive, in my opinion. Wishing you the best, going forward!
