Abstract

The diagnosis of prostate cancer is based on histology. Prostate biopsies are obtained based on the triad of prostate specific antigen (PSA), digital rectal examination (DRE) and transrectal ultrasound. Because prostate biopsies still have a large percentage of negative outcomes, patient selection and biopsy direction need improvement. This paper describes the recent improvements in prostate cancer imaging, especially contrast-enhanced transrectal ultrasound.
