To assess the impact of ultrasound probe (end fire vs. side fire) during MRI-targeted prostate biopsy using cognitive fusion. Inclusion criteria were as follows: consecutive patients undergoing prostate biopsies after multiparametric MRI; no PSA above 10 ng/ml; no clinical bulking disease; MRI areas suspicious for malignancy. From January 2011 to December 2012, 91 patients were included. A standard 10 TRUS-guided biopsy protocol plus 2 targeted biopsies at any MRI lesion was used. Patient’s… CONTINUE READING
