|Prostate random biopsy versus targeted biopsy|
The percentage of positivity obtained with random biopsy (12 cores) was 77.2%. The diagnosis of prostate carcinoma obtained with fusion biopsy (4 cores) was positive in 76.9% and target lesions scanned with mpMRI. No major or minor complications were observed. The deviation between the two techniques was 0.3%. The difference between the two methods for diagnostic purposes seems to be meaningless However we should consider that the high number of cores obtained the high procedure related complications may appear (e.g: hematuria, infections, neuro-vascular bundle lesions).
