Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has emerged as the most accurate diagnostic tool, showing a high sensitivity in the diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer (csCaP). However only a minority of patients with a PI-RADS 3 lesion at multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are diagnosed with csCaP. The aim of the current study was to assess whether high resolution micro-ultrasound (microUS) could help in sub-stratifying the risk of csCaP in this specific population.

Abstract

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has emerged as the most accurate diagnostic tool, showing a high sensitivity in the diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer (csCaP). However only a minority of patients with a PI-RADS 3 lesion at multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are diagnosed with csCaP. The aim of the current study was to assess whether high resolution micro-ultrasound (microUS) could help in sub-stratifying the risk of csCaP in this specific population.
