Dante Labs sent me their Full DNA whole genome sequencing package, and I went through a roller-coaster of feelings: I was excited to know every secret of my cells, but I was afraid to get to know my hereditary cancer risks and worried what I might find. As in my case, (scientific) curiosity usually overrides fear, I jumped into the unknown and I’m eager to share my results here. Whole genome sequencing is available to anyone. So what? The human genome is the blueprint for building a person. When the Human Genome Project was completed in 2006, and the DNA double spiral uncovered its secrets for the very first time, sc...

Multiparametric MR imaging is being used for prostate cancer diagnosis. However, many cancers are missed and the performance needs to improve before it can be used for population-level screening. We can expect standardization of multiparametric MR imaging and increased use of quantitative multiparametric MR imaging, which will lead to more reproducible results and improved interpretation. The development and integration of new acquisition techniques and use of artificial intelligence for image interpretation can lead to implementation of new clinical MR methods. These will lead to increased adoption of multiparametric MR i...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the characteristics and histological outcomes in patients with Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) 3 lesions undergoing magnetic resonance imaging-guided fusion-targeted biopsy (MRIFTB).MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed 138 patients with PI-RADS category 3 lesions classified using multiparametric MRI who underwent MRIFTB between May 2016 and March 2018. The study population included biopsy-na ïve and patients with prior negative biopsy. Univariate and multivariate analyzes were performed to determine significant predictors of prostate cancer (PCa) and clinically significant...

Abstract Prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer represent the 3 most common urologic malignancies, and form a heterogenous group of disease processes, with a wide range of pathologic features. As a urologist, a strong understanding of the pathologic features of urologic malignancies is essential to prognosticate and counsel patients and to determine the most effective course of treatment. This review discusses the pathologic features of prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer, and examines how detailed pathologic reporting is critical to today's practicing urologist.
