PSA blood tests while useful, have significant false-negatives and false-positives. Multiparametric (mp) MRI of the prostate has revolutionized the detection and treatment of prostate cancer. The invasive trans-rectal multi-needle TRUS biopsy is no longer indicated as the primary diagnostic tool.
mp Prostate MRI allows radiologists to calculate risks associated with tissues in the prostate and around it's perimeter. Targeted biopsies resulting in information from mp Prostate MRI are more accurate and less invasive than conventional 12-needle TRUS biopsies.
