Different TPSA and prostate volume detection of prostate cancer by using 13-core and theoretical 10-core transrectal ultrasound-guided needle biopsies scheme

Abstract

This study aims to compare efficiency between 13-core and theoretical 10-core transrectal ultrasound guided needle biopsies scheme to detect prostate cancer. From January 2001 to January 2010, 409 patients who underwent 13-core biopsy were analyzed. We further defined a theoretical 10-core biopsy to be performed by reducing 3 midline punctures in prostate… (More)
