This perspective cohort study aims to assess the detection rate of prostate cancer through prostate biopsy within suspicious patients harboring unfavorable multiparametric MRI but favorable 68Ga-PSMA PET/MRI who have had no prior prostate biopsy.
Multiparametric MRI (MpMRI) is currently regarded as the best imaging method to noninvasively identify and characterize prostate cancer (PCa) with the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) v2. However, there are diagnostic difficulties for suspicious patients with PI-RADS score 3 and not all PCa are equivalently visible on mpMRI. For such patients, other alternative imaging techniques are required to properly characterize and detect PCa.
It has been widely reported that 68Ga-PSMA PET imaging offers excellent performance in detecting primary PCa and is able to noninvasively characterize the aggressiveness of PCa. Recently, integrated PET/MRI, which combines the strengths of both modalities, has been shown to have great potential for influencing clinical practice by providing a more certain map of localized PCa to aid targeted biopsies and therapy.
This perspective cohort study aims to assess the detection rate of PCa through prostate biopsy within suspicious patients harboring unfavorable mpMRI but favorable 68Ga-PSMA PET/MRI who have had no prior prostate biopsy.

The objective of the study is to evaluate 68Ga PSMA 11 PET/MRI and 68Ga RM2 PET/MRI for biopsy guidance in patients with suspected prostate cancer.
BIOPSTAGE is a prospective, non-randomized, diagnostic, multi-cohort investigational study to evaluate the impact of pelvic Multi-parametric 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (mp-3TMRI) a...
The purpose of the study is to find out whether imaging of the prostate with a new molecule called 68Ga-PSMA can find prostate cancer. 68Ga-PSMA has been shown in a large number of patient...
This study evaluates the value of Gallium-68 labeled PSMA (68Ga-PSMA) for PET/CT imaging of prostate cancer recurrence. 68Ga-PSMA is a radioactive molecule, which binds to prostate cancer ...
The overall objective of this Early Phase Clinical Trial is to begin defining the accuracy of 68Ga-PSMA-11 for detecting the location and size of clinically significant prostate cancer les...
Prostate-specific-membrane-antigen (PSMA) is a transmembrane protein with significantly increased expression in the cells and metastases of prostate carcinoma (PCa). PSMA-expression correlates with hi...
To identify the group of patients who could safely avoid prostate biopsy based on the findings of multiparametric prostate resonance imaging (MRmp), parameterized with PI-RADS v2, using prostate biops...
Most scientific data on 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT is for the evaluation of recurrent disease after primary treatment. To our knowledge this study is the largest series of primary prostate cancer staging with 6...
We present a case of biopsy-proven prostatic adenocarcinoma with a tracer-avid left paravertebral location at D4 to D5 vertebrae, suggestive of metastasis. However, in view of uncommon location of sin...
A 77-year-old man with newly diagnosed prostate adenocarcinoma with a total prostate-specific antigen level of 6.4 ng/mL and Gleason score 7 (4 + 3) was referred to Ga-prostate-specific membrane antig...
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.
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
A family of trypsin-like SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES that are expressed in a variety of cell types including human prostate epithelial cells. They are formed from tissue prokallikrein by action with TRYPSIN. They are highly similar to PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN. EC 126.96.36.199.
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).
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
An enlarged prostate (benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)) is common in men after the age of about 50. Having an enlarged prostate does not mean you have cancer. In some cases, an enlarged prostate can cause the ...
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...
