Targeted and Systematic Biopsy for the Diagnosis and Management of Prostate Cancer - A Case for Lesion Targeted-Only Biopsies.

Targeted and Systematic Biopsy for the Diagnosis and Management of Prostate Cancer - A Case for Lesion Targeted-Only Biopsies. Clin Oncol (R Coll Radiol). 2020 Mar;32(3):136-143 Authors: Tam JO, Ahmed HU Abstract For much of the 1990s, transrectal ultrasound systematic biopsy was the standard approach for prostate cancer diagnosis. However, in the past decade multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging, multiparametric ultrasound and image fusion targeting have come to the fore. Here we present the state-of-the-art diagnostic strategies in prostate cancer detection and examine the case for target-only biopsy, as well as the benefits and limitations.

CONCLUSION: Cognitive targeted prostate biopsy based on mpMRI presents a valuable addition to systematic biopsy in patients with repeated negative systematic biopsies but persistent clinical suspicion of prostate cancer. PMID: 32118378 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: The frequency of histomorphological alterations is slightly higher in prostate tissues from TBs compared to SB. Only vascular alterations seem to be distinct for TBs. However, it has to be assumed that additional factors influence the false-negative rate of mpMRI/ultrasound fusion-guided TB. PMID: 32113858 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The 3 Tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) combined ultrasound (TRUS) targeted biopsy plus 12-core systematic biopsy (TBx  + 12-SBx) was considered a reliable method for prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis. To find another optimal sampling scheme with fewer cores and the same efficiency as TBx + 12-SBx for prostate biopsy, 113 patients who underwent five different hypothetical sampling schemes were analyzed and com pared with TBx + 12-SBx. The detection rates of targeted biopsy plus 6-core lateral systematic biopsy (TBx + lateral 6-SBx) for PCa and clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa) (99.1% an...

Focal laser ablation (FLA) for prostate cancer is usually performed in an MRI gantry, but can be performed outside MRI with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) –MRI fusion. Relative costs were compared between the two approaches.

Publication date: Available online 18 February 2020Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Devaki Shilpa Sudha Surasi, Brian Chapin, Chad Tang, Gregory Ravizzini, Tharakeswara Kumar BathalaAbstractProstate cancer (PCa) is the most common non-cutaneous malignancy in men and the second leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. Men with clinical suspicion of PCa undergo tissue sampling and based on features including the Gleason score, Prostate Specific antigen (PSA) levels and clinical tumor (T) stage, patients are risk stratified into 6 major groups based on National Comprehensive Cancer Netwo...

Abstract PURPOSE: Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common cancers in elderly men worldwide. Systematic biopsy guided by transrectal ultrasound remains the standard for PCa diagnosis; however, the false negative rate is 10-20%. Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) allows PCa visualization with a more precise localization and a higher accuracy and specificity for the detection of PCa. The physician can mentally relocate the most appropriate area detected on the prebiopsy mpMRI, based on its zonal topography and anatomical landmarks, called cognitive fusion. Herein, we concentrated on the accura...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze prostatic-specific antigen density (PSAD) according to the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PIRADSv.2) score, in order to determine how it should be used. METHODS: This correlative series considered 952 men with prostatic-specific antigen>3 ng/ml and/or abnormal digital rectal examination who were subjected to prostatic biopsy (PB) between 2016 and 2017. Of these men, 768 had no previous 5-α-reductase inhibitor use or history of prostate cancer (CaP) and had previously undergone 3-T multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI). In this sample, 549 men w...

ConclusionIn patients with PSA serum levels of 4∼10 ng/mL, bpMRI and bpMRI combined with PSAD achieve better performance than mpMRI in detecting csPCa; bpMRI has a higher specificity than mpMRI, which could decrease unnecessary biopsy, and may serve as a potential alternative to mpMRI to optimize clinical workup.
