The role of MRI-guided biopsy for diagnosis of prostate cancer; comparison between FUSION and "IN-BORE" approaches.

The role of MRI-guided biopsy for diagnosis of prostate cancer; comparison between FUSION and "IN-BORE" approaches. Minerva Urol Nefrol. 2020 May 26;: Authors: D'agostino D, Casablanca C, Mineo Bianchi F, Corsi P, Romagnoli D, Giampaoli M, Fiori C, Schiavina R, Brunocilla E, Artibani W, Porreca A Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the difference in terms of feasibility and detection rate of two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided biopsy approaches (MRI fusion versus "in-bore" MRI) in a single tertiary centre. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 297 patients with suspected prostate cancer who underwent MRI based target prostate biopsy (FUSION or "in-bore" approaches) between January 2016 and January 2018 in a single tertiary centre. RESULTS: Lesion site (peripheral vs central) and localization (anterior vs posterior) were equally comparable among two groups, but maximum diameter of multiparametric-MRI index lesion was slightly superior in the in-bore MRI-GB group (14 vs 12 mm, p=0.002). Mean random biopsy cores taken were 11.2±2.1, with 1.3±2 positive cores in FUSION-GB group. Mean number of targeted biopsy cores taken was significantly superior in the FUSION-GB group as compared to the in-bore MRI-GB group(2.6±0.7 vs 1.7±1, p

This article gives a brief overview of the current clinical applications in PET/magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in abdominal diseases. Initial technical developments concentrated on improvement of attenuation correction. Significant enhancements have been achieved, which is now considered solved and useable for clinical routine. For clinical applicability, a considerable amount of work was done by several groups to tailor disease-specific protocols for PET/MR imaging. Those protocols focused on providing complementary diagnostic information from the PET as well as from the MR imaging component. Successful protocol implemen...

AbstractPurposeDiagnosis of anterior prostate cancer (PCa) can be quite challenging, often leading to delay in treatment. mpMRI-guided biopsy (GB) has been introduced aiming to increase the number of diagnoses of clinically significant PCa with fewer cores. The aim of our study is to compare pathological findings of prostate biopsy, In-bore or Fusion technique, with histopathological evaluation of radical prostatectomy.MethodsWe prospectively collected data from 90 consecutive patients who underwent either In-bore or Fusion biopsy following the detection of an index suspicious lesion at mpMRI in the anterior part of the pr...

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the seventh most diagnosed cancer and the tenth leading cause of cancer mortality in China. Unlike the USA, both incidence and mortality continue to increase. In China, PCa is often diagnosed at a locally advanced or metastatic stage, resulting in a high mortality-to-incidence ratio. Implementing regular screening using a well-validated biomarker may result in the earlier diagnosis of localized disease. Furthermore, it is important to be able to distinguish between low-grade and high-grade disease, to avoid subjecting patients to unnecessary biopsies, undertreatment of significant disease, or overt...

This study developed and evaluated machine learning models using quantitative radiomic features extracted from multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) to detect and classify prostate cancer (PCa). In total, 191 patients that underwent prostatic mpMRI and combined targeted and systematic fusion biopsy were retrospectively included. Segmentations of the whole prostate glands and index lesions were performed manually in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps and T2-weighted MRI. Radiomic features were extracted from regions corresponding to the whole prostate gland and index lesion. The best performing combinati...
