Should MRI Be Used to Monitor for AS? Con Argument

Nelson N. Stone, MD, argues that MRI’s limitations make it insufficient for evaluating and managing prostate cancer patients under consideration for active surveillance (AS) or targeted focal therapy (TFT). Instead, urologists should consider technology like the under-development 3DBiopsy™ system, with a transperineal needle along with mapping software. This approach can detect the precise location of lesions and create a roadmap for treatment planning.
