Accuracy of MRI-Guided Prostate Biopsy Tested in Clinical Trial

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MRI-guided prostate biopsy are emerging as useful applications in the detection of prostate cancer. Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) biopsy, the current traditional method of diagnosis prostate cancer, can result in sampling errors that lead to delayed diagnosis or misclassification of cancers. In a first-of-its-kind trial, TRUS biopsy and MRI-guided prostate biopsy were compared to see which can best detect prostate cancers and help to triage prostate cancer patients.
