OBJECTIVES Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided random biopsies is the gold standard when diagnosing prostate cancer. A new 3D system with organ tracking, allows accurate targeted biopsies using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and TRUS soft image fusion. The aim of the study was to evaluate the accuracy of targeted biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective study of 90 consecutive patients with suspected prostate cancer underwent MRI prior to biopsy using 3D T2w and diffusion weighted… CONTINUE READING
