OBJECTIVES We explored the yield of saturation biopsy and developed a nomogram predicting the probability of prostate cancer (PCa) on the basis of saturation biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 2001 and 2004, saturation biopsies (average of 24 cores) were performed in 161 men with persistently elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) level (median, 9 ng/ml). All had at least two previously negative, eight-core biopsy sessions. PCa predictors on saturation biopsy were integrated within… CONTINUE READING
