Significant discordance exists between biopsy and matched prostatectomy grades. This study tests the hypothesis that surrogate tumor volume indices available from biopsies could yield an improved prediction of the underlying pathologic Gleason grade. Records of 124 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy were reviewed. Biopsies were characterized by primary and secondary Gleason grade, number of positive cores, and linear tumor length. Surgical specimens were characterized by primary and… CONTINUE READING
