BACKGROUND Conventional biopsy fails to detect the presence of some prostate cancers (PCas). Men with a prior negative biopsy but persistently elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) pose a diagnostic dilemma, as some harbor elusive cancer. OBJECTIVE To determine whether use of magnetic resonance-ultrasound (MR-US) fusion biopsy results in improved detection of PCa compared to repeat conventional biopsy. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS In a consecutive-case series, 105 subjects with… CONTINUE READING
