OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of real-time elastography (RTE) in an initial biopsy setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS In the period from February 2011 to June 2012, 127 consecutive patients were included in the study. We used a Hitachi Preirus with Hi-RTE module, a prostate end-fire transrectal probe was used for RTE and for targeted biopsies, and a simultaneous biplane probe was used for the standard systematic biopsies. The peripheral zone of the prostate was divided into six regions… CONTINUE READING
