According to the PRECISION study, MRI + targeted biopsy on csPCa is superior to standard biopsy and resulted in a
when compared to standard 12-core biopsy.
Existing nomenclature carries different meanings between Radiology and Urology departments. For example, right-mid medial on a radiologist's MRI may be dissimilar to right-mid medial on a urologist's ultrasound image during biopsy.
Tools that ensure effective communication between Radiology and Urology are critical to enhancing patient outcomes.
1 in 6 lesions are subject to misinterpretation.3
As a result of differences in patient positioning during MRI acquisition and biopsy, one in six lesions are reported in a different sector than they appear during US-guided biopsy.4 In fact, the average orientation difference between MRI and ultrasound biopsy is 12 degrees.5
