UNLABELLED Study Type - Diagnostic (case series). LEVEL OF EVIDENCE 4. OBJECTIVE • To investigate the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in selecting patients for active surveillance (AS). PATIENTS AND METHODS • We identified prostate cancers patients who had undergone a 21-core biopsy scheme and fulfilled the criteria as follows: prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level ≤ 10 ng/mL, T1-T2a disease, a Gleason score ≤ 6, <3 positive cores and tumour length per core <3 mm. • We included… CONTINUE READING
