BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of increased color Doppler (CD) flow has not previously been addressed in histologic evaluations of microvascular parameters. In this study, the authors attempted to define the differences between benign and malignant biopsy cores found in regions of the prostate with normal and high CD flow. METHODS Forty patients were retrospectively chosen for CD histologic comparison, each of whom had a core from a sextant biopsy with the following characteristics: malignant… CONTINUE READING
