New tech improves ability to detect prostate cancer A new MRI-US image fusion technique, which is the first advancement in screening for prostate cancer in 30 years, is now available in the Southeast — only at UAB’s Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care.

Jeffrey Nix, M.D., and Soroush Rais-Bahrami, M.D., are two of a select few urologists trained to use this technology. It replaces less reliable, random tissue-sampling with a targeted biopsy of suspicious areas that “can detect prostate cancer with high accuracy,” Nix said.

Local favorite one of four restaurants coming to new student center The first on-campus location for Alabama’s Full Moon Bar-B-Que will join other top local and national restaurant chains in the $48 million student center now under construction at UAB. Scheduled to open in fall 2015, the facility will bring world-class facilities and services to current students and attract potential students, says UAB Provost Linda Lucas. The facility’s dining space is now at 100 percent capacity with commitments from Panera Bread, Starbucks and Mein Bowl.
