"The map created by ProUroScan is akin to a weather map. We're measuring the displacement of tissue. The more tissue you displace the lighter the color. Any dark formations are an indication that elasticity is different. Over time, we'll be able to say that tissue is not only different, but in fact is most likely a cancer formation."

– Rick Carlson, CEO of ProUroCare Medical (Minneapolis) on how his company's ProUroScan can help a physician detect when a patient may have a more progressive disease or a more benign disease, "Prostate mechanical imaging may improve cancer detection," pp. 1, 6.
