[The role of the absolute value and "density" of the prostate-specific antigen estimated echographically in the selection of patients to undergo a biopsy in suspected prostatic carcinoma. A comparison between PSA, palpation and echography in 95 patients undergoing echo-guided endorectal prostatic biopsy].

Abstract

We retrospectively reviewed the findings relative to 95 patients with known prostate specific antigen (PSA) values who had undergone digital rectal examination, transrectal US and US-guided biopsy for suspected prostate carcinoma. Histology (48 adenocarcinomas, 26 BPHs, 12 inflammations and 9 negatives) was compared with results from rectal examination… (More)
