Wulphert Venderink Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MRI-targeted biopsy of the prostateA MRI of the prostate is increasingly being used to detect prostate cancer. By using MRI, some men can avoid biopsies of the prostate. Published results show that approximately 25% of men with a suspicion of having prostate cancer can avoid biopsy because of a negative MRI. We analysed the data of over 4000 men having MRI of the prostate in our hospital. These data show that in case MRI is done in a prostate MR centre of excellence can avoid biopsy in almost 60%. In case a suspicious lesion is seen, prostate cancer is diagnosed in up to 90%.
