abstract

  • The prostate-cancer yield of transrectal biopsies in a 3-T MRI scanner, among patients with recent negative TRUS-guided prostate biopsies, is similar to repeat systematic TRUS-guided biopsy. DCE correlates with T2-imaging but does not appear to improve prostate cancer yield in this population.
