Further advances in imaging for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer.
The challenge of managing prostate cancer in the modern era is to risk stratify patients so that they are neither
under nor over-treated. New imaging techniques now allow specific localization of prostate cancers facilitating targeted biopsy and appropriate treatments.
Multiparametric prostate MRI scanning has increased the diagnostic accuracy for the detection of prostate cancer. It
has decreased the number of negative prostate biopsies and is rapidly developing as a reliable, non-invasive means of monitoring men on active surveillance programs for low risk prostate cancers.
