BACKGROUND Conventional gray scale ultrasound has a low sensitivity and specificity for prostate cancer detection. Better imaging modalities are needed. OBJECTIVE To determine sensitivity and specificity for prostate cancer detection with ultrasound-based real-time elastography (elastography) in patients scheduled for radical prostatectomy (RP). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Between July and October 2007, 109 patients with biopsy-proven localized prostate cancer (PCa) underwent… CONTINUE READING
