abstract

  • The MRI scoring system devised was a strong predictor of biochemical recurrence after RP. Although MRI did not provide added prognostic value to standard clinical nomograms, in centres where MRI is used routinely, it might increase the confidence of the clinician in assessing the risk of recurrence by contributing supporting data.
