To quickly and accurately diagnose prostate cancer, urologists at Hackensack University Medical Center employ RAPID pathway, a set of proven diagnosis guidelines and recommendations.

The RAPID pathway includes application of several diagnostic tests, such as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, a digital rectal exam (DRE) and potentially a prostate biopsy.

The RAPID pathway goal is to provide a clear and efficient process for physicians diagnosing prostate cancer, so patients can receive timely, appropriate treatment. By using a combination of diagnostic tests and following the pathway’s guidelines, urologists can accurately diagnose prostate cancer and recommend appropriate treatment options.

One of the key advantages of the RAPID pathway is that it allows for a rapid prostate cancer diagnosis, which can be critical in the early stages of the disease. This is important with prostate cancer to ensure optimal patient outcomes and reduce the risk of advanced or metastatic disease.
