ABOUT THE APCRA

With the APCRA you will receive a scan using a four-dimensional Power Colour Doppler Ultrasound. This new generation of Power Colour Doppler Ultrasound is capable of very fine detection, especially in the hands of an expert.

The consultation and procedure will last around 3 hours and your physician will walk you through the results of his assessment and explain every aspect and each option that you have, also answering any questions that you may have.

In most cases this procedure and consultation will be able to tell you whether there is a tumor present, and whether it is already outside the prostate envelope and how dangerous it is. It will also confirm if you have BPH or Prostatitis. It is certainly less hit and miss than a biopsy and will give you far more detailed information.

Keep in mind even if you already have had a biopsy in the past that did not detect any cancer that a prostate biopsy is only 85% reliable. So a past biopsy that was clear does not guarantee you do not have prostate cancer. Most importantly your APCRA will not do any damage whereas a biopsy might.

This colour doppler scan diagnostic on its own is as accurate as a Biopsy but when the results are analyzed by the expert I’m sending you to, those results when aggregated with the data from all the other tests will provide a far more detailed, informative and accurate assessment than reliance on a biopsy.

And the greatest additional benefits apart from that, is that it is non-invasive, does no damage and does not close off any avenues of natural treatment.

The additional tests which you will receive at your first visit include an up-to-date PSA including percent 100% free PSA, a PAP prostatic acid phosphatase test, a saliva test to provide a comprehensive analysis of your available hormone balances (that includes testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and more), an alkaline phosphatase test and most importantly a PCA3 test done through the originating and most respected urological American lab, Bostwick.

Because the results of all those additional tests will not be available at the time of your first visit, your payment covers a further diagnostic session over the telephone for up to one hour once all those results are in.

In other words, you will receive a preliminary diagnosis at the time of your first visit but the additional data provided by the comprehensive bank of tests will provide a much stronger and more certain basis for diagnosis.

You will also receive a detailed written report for your APCRA. That is particularly important since it provides a detailed baseline upon which to make judgments in subsequent years. It also will enable you to see to what extent your therapies or this trial anti-prostate cancer supplement are working to contain or even improve your condition.

You can show this report to your own doctor if you wish. It also means that it can be used for its valuable baseline data and analysis, should you decide to have your prostate monitored or diagnosed elsewhere.

Most importantly, it allows you to postpone having a biopsy, possibly making it unnecessary for you ever to have a prostate biopsy.

It is only when you know exactly what is happening inside your prostate that you can make informed judgments about whether you should have treatment, what treatment to have and potentially monitor the results of any treatment you do have.

The cost of the APCRA is $4075. If you would like to proceed and book an appointment or have more questions about the procedure please fill in the form at the bottom of the page.

Below is a detailed description of what you will be getting in your preliminary examination If you decide to proceed with my APCRA.

You will receive a thorough 3 hour consultation from a Naturopathic Physician who is also a Professor of Urology.

The APCRA is actually more informative than a biopsy or an MRI scan. The clinic I am sending you to has a unique combination of technology and expertise.

Biopsy is invasive and damaging invariably causing infection, sometimes causing long-term sexual problems and it will also spread cancer cells if any are within the prostate, thereby making metastasis more likely. APCRA is a safer and more effective alternative.
