abstract

  • TRUS-Bx does not accurately reflect RRP histology when predicting well- or poorly differentiated lesions. Prostate cancer treatment algorithms should not be predicated upon biopsy histology alone. Histologic interpretation is more accurate and precise when performed by a single experienced uropathologist.
