PURPOSE The specificity of current screening methods for prostate cancer is limited and it results in approximately 75% to 80% of patients who undergo biopsy having findings negative for cancer. We used electrical impedance spectroscopy to evaluate how significantly the electrical properties of benign and malignant prostatic tissues differ with the goal of providing clinicians with a new biomarker to aid in diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We collected freshly excised prostates from 14 men… CONTINUE READING
