Lateral biopsies added to the traditional sextant prostate biopsy pattern increases the detection rate of prostate cancer

Abstract

Urologists routinely use the systematic sextant needle biopsy technique to detect prostate cancer. However, recent evidence suggests that this technique has a significant sampling error and data based upon whole-mounted step-sectioned radical prostatectomy specimens using a three-dimensional computer-assisted prostate biopsy simulator suggests that an… (More)
