BACKGROUND: Whilst multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) has been a significant advance in the diagnosis of prostate cancer, scanning all patients with elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels is considered too costly for widespread National Health Service (NHS) use, as the predictive value of PSA levels for significant disease is poor. Despite the fact that novel blood and urine tests are available which may predict aggressive disease better than PSA, they are not routinely employed due to a lack of clinical validity studies...

BACKGROUND: Active surveillance (AS) is an established option for men with low risk prostate cancer (CaP). Multiparametric-MRI (MP-MRI) with MRI-TRUS fusion-guided biopsy (FB) may better identify patients for AS, compared to systematic 12-core biopsy (SB), due to improved risk stratification. The performance of MP-MRI in following men on AS with visible lesions is unknown. We aim to evaluate MP-MRI and FB in monitoring men on AS. METHODS: Retrospective review of men from 2007-2015 with CaP on AS with MRI visible lesions monitored by MP-MRI and FB were included...

INTRODUCTION: The presence of extracapsular extension (ECE) in prostate cancer (PCa) can influence a surgeon's decision to perform a nerve-sparing approach during radical prostatectomy (RP). Preoperatively, multiparametric MRI (mp-MRI) is often used to stage PCa. More recently, the use of mp-MRI has gained wide acceptance in fusion biopsy of the prostate. In this framework, the reported accuracy of mp-MRI has been highly variable, with data often originating from large referral centers with experienced radiologists...

One in six men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. Early detection and accurate diagnosis of the disease can improve cancer survival and reduce treatment costs. Recently, imaging of prostate cancer has greatly advanced since the introduction of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI). Mp-MRI consists of T2-weighted sequences combined with functional sequences including dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, diffusion-weighted MRI, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging. Because of the big data and variations in imaging sequences, detection can be affected by multiple factors such as observer variability and visibility and complexity of the lesions...
