Prostate biopsy in the supine position in a standard 1.5-T scanner under real time MR-imaging control using a MR-compatible endorectal biopsy device


Thirty-seven consecutive patients with elevated PSA levels and negative tumor prostate biopsies underwent a MR-guided prostate biopsy in a 1.5-T scanner in the supine position.
