MRI-Ultrasound Fusion Improves Prostate Biopsy Cancer Detection

“Magnetic resonance imaging-ultrasound fusion targeted prostate biopsy (MRF-TB) improves detection and risk stratification of high-grade disease and limits detection of clinically insignificant prostate cancer, according to a study published in the December issue of the The Journal of Urology.

“Neil Mendhiratta, from the New York University Langone Medical Center in New York City, and colleagues reported clinical outcomes for 452 consecutive men presenting for primary . Participants underwent prebiopsy multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging followed by MRF-TB and systematic biopsy.”
