BACKGROUND The efficacy of adding target prostate biopsy (PBx) of suspected cancer lesions identified on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) to initial systematic PBx was evaluated. Moreover, the outcomes were compared between 2 physicians. METHODS We retrospectively investigated 238 patients who underwent first-time PBx in our hospital. All patients were examined with prostate MRI before PBx. Fourteen systematic biopsies were obtained in all patients… CONTINUE READING
