PURPOSE We conducted a trial in patients with prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels from 2 to 10 ng/ml to validate a newly developed nomogram that defines the optimal number of biopsy cores required for prostate cancer (PCa) detection based on patient age and total prostate volume (Vienna nomogram). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 502 patients underwent transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy using the Vienna nomogram. These results were compared with those of a previous group of 1… CONTINUE READING
