RadNet has been a national leader in providing high-quality, cost effective diagnostic and imaging services for over 35 years. With 340 owned and operated outpatient facilities across 6 states, RadNet performs more than 7 million imaging exams annually, providing advanced imaging modalities, subspecialty expertise, technological innovations, cutting-edge equipment and current research.
RadNet was one of the first radiology practices in the United States to establish a dedicated Prostate Program. Under the stewardship of co-directors Dr. Robert Princenthal and Dr. Martin Cohen, the RadNet Prostate Program has performed more prostate MRI exams than any group in the country, with a level of accuracy that meets or exceeds top academic centers worldwide. This level of knowledge and insight results in accurate, relevant and clinically significant reports for patients and their doctors.
The TULSA-PRO Program at RadNet is offered in a newly constructed state-of-the-art treatment room with a full critical care nursing staff, anesthesiologist, MRI technologist, Radiologist-Urologist team and a clinical scientist from Profound/TULSA-PRO. Urologists are invited to either train to perform the TULSA-PRO procedure alongside Dr.’s Princenthal and Cohen, or participate in a hybrid model wherein they can still oversee and monitor their patients throughout the treatment cycle.
RadNet remains dedicated to advancing early detection of disease and to empowering patients to take charge of their health.Visit Radnet’s Liberty Pacific West Hills Facility website
