Clinical Research Participation
Urological Associates of Savannah, P.C. partners with Meridian Clinical Research. Together, we conduct clinical trials to help research better therapies for the patients we see, and for people worldwide.
Without clinical trials, it would be impossible to develop new medicines and cures. These studies also offer more care options for our patients suffering from chronic and rare health conditions. This is especially helpful for patients who struggle to find effective therapies currently on the market.
We are now accepting participants for several clinical trials. Research studies offer a way for almost anyone, regardless of age or background, to help improve human health and well being. Beyond helping advance medicine, you may also:
- Get care from a local doctor at no cost
- Learn about new medicines in development
- Receive study-related medical exams at no cost
- Get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study)
Our clinical studies are held to incredibly high standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Meridian. Every effort is made to ensure patient safety. Participating in a clinical study is always optional — regardless of what you do, we will continue to provide excellent traditional urological care.
To learn more about studies at Urological Associates and Meridian, talk to your doctor or visit Meridian’s website.
We proudly offer UroNav - a fusion biopsy system that fuses pre-biopsy MRI images of the prostate with ultrasound-guided biopsy images allowing for excellent delineation of the prostate and suspicious lesions, as well as clear visualization of the biopsy needle.
A DEXAscan is a test that measures bone mineral density. Short for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, the DEXAscan helps evaluate bone health and determines the likelihood of osteoporosis or bone fractures. It can also help detect if cancer has metastasized or spread to the bones.
The test is easy, fast, non-invasive, painless and performed here in our office at Urological Associates. The scan takes approximately 30 minutes but most of that time is spent preparing you to lay on the table. Unlike MRI or CT scans, you will not have to lie inside a closed tunnel or ring but rather be on an open x-ray table. You remain still as the scanner passes over your body.
Once the procedure is concluded, the physician will read the test and relay the findings.
