Is it worth traveling for a multiparametric MRI?

Title: Is it worth traveling for an MRI?
Absolutely. I‘ve had a number of patients…I recall one patient just recently and this is a guy who had a Gleason 6, lives in the middle of the country, we got to talking about it, he’s going to travel to get to the bottom of his cancer, so I recommended he go to a center in Boston, which I knew did good MRIs, cause they did 2 on me, they did 2 MRI-guided biopsies on me. He went there and the MRI showed that he didn’t have any tumors seen on the MRI, so with the Gleason 6, a small Gleason 6, he can just follow with PSAs and then he may get another MRI in about three years or so.
