Abstract

Purpose: The aim of the study was to analyse and compare the ability of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) and prostate biopsy (PB) to correctly identify tumor foci in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer (PCa). Materials and Methods: 157 patients with clinically localised PCa with a PSA
