Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MP-MRI) and MRI/ultrasound (US) fusion-guided biopsy are becoming more widely used techniques for prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis and management. However, their widespread adoption and use, where available, are limited by cost and added time. These limitations could be minimized if a biparametric MRI (BP-MRI) focusing on T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted imaging is performed. Herein we report the cancer detection rate of BP-MRI compared with full MP-MRI.

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enhances detection and risk stratification for significant prostate cancer but is time-consuming (approximately 40 minutes) and expensive. Rapid and si...
Dynamic-contrast enhanced (DCE) sequence is used to increase detection of small lesions, based on increased vascularization. However, literature is controversy about the real incremental value of DCE ...
The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of a head-to-head comparison between the performance of biparametric MRI (bpMRI; only T2-weighted imaging and DWI) and th...
The objective of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of abbreviated biparametric MRI (bpMRI) versus standard multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) for prostate cancer (PCa) using guided biopsy or ...
The purpose of this study was to assess the diagnostic performance of prospectively assigned mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) structured reports for disc...
The primary objective of the study is the matching of sensitivity, specificity, the negative predicate value and the positive predictive value of Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS), Shear...
Prostate biopsies are currently the gold standard for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Many biopsies, however, are unnecessary or cannot detect significant prostate cancer (PCa). With mul...
In men who have had a prior prostate biopsy and who require further risk stratification, does a multi-parametric ultrasound based diagnostic strategy compared to a multi-parametric MRI bas...
Prostate cancer (PC) is the most common malignancy (4500 new cases/year) and the second leading cause of cancer-associated mortality (1200 deaths/year) among men in Denmark. PC is generall...
To compare the detection rate of biparametric (bp) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa) with that of multiparametric (mp)-MRI, in biopsy-naïve...
A childhood disorder predominately affecting boys and similar to autism (AUTISTIC DISORDER). It is characterized by severe, sustained, clinically significant impairment of social interaction, and restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior. In contrast to autism, there are no clinically significant delays in language or cognitive development. (From DSM-IV)
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
