Summary of "Consecutive transperineal prostatic template biopsies employing cognitive and systematic approach: a single center study."

The role of transperineal template biopsy for prostate cancer diagnosis is well established. Pre-biopsy multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used in most centers for planning of prostate biopsies and staging. Cognitive and software fusion techniques are increasingly getting popular. We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent transperineal template biopsies from January 2016 till December 2018. This included patients on active surveillance, previous negative transrectal ultrasonography biopsies with persistently raised prostate-specific antigen/abnormal prostate on digital rectal examination and de-novo template biopsies. Two specialist uro-radiologists reported all the scans and the biopsies were performed by one experienced urologist. The cognitive biopsies were performed for PIRADS 3-5 lesions on MRI. Total of 330 patients underwent transperineal template biopsies and cognitive target biopsies were carried out in 75 patients who were included in the study. We evaluated the results as positive/negative cognitive biopsies and also according to the PIRAD scoring. Only the patients with prostate cancer on template biopsy histology were included. Fifty-seven (76%) of the cognitive biopsies were positive out of total 75.    PIRAD Score P ositive N egative              PIRAD 3 8 (53.33%) 7             PIRAD 4 36 (83.72%) 7             PIRAD 5 13 (76.47%) 4           Combined cognitive and systematic biopsies have excellent diagnostic rate especially for PIRAD 4-5 MRI areas.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).

A premalignant change arising in the prostatic epithelium, regarded as the most important and most likely precursor of prostatic adenocarcinoma. The neoplasia takes the form of an intra-acinar or ductal proliferation of secretory cells with unequivocal nuclear anaplasia, which corresponds to nuclear grade 2 and 3 invasive prostate cancer.

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.

The biosynthesis of RNA carried out on a template of DNA. The biosynthesis of DNA from an RNA template is called REVERSE TRANSCRIPTION.

Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.
