Adverse Pathologic Characteristics in the Small Renal Mass

Summary:

Peter Schulam, MD, PhD, reviews the controversy surrounding prostate cancer screening, explains the literature that led to the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) coming out with a C recommendation for prostate cancer screening, and notes the limitations in the current standard of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) biopsy. He then discusses how MRI fusion biopsy could address these limitations.
