Should MRI Be Used to Monitor for AS? Pro Argument –

Summary:

Peter A. Pinto, MD, argues that MRI can help select prostate cancer patients for active surveillance (AS). While MRI has some limitations, with proper application, it can reduce patient and urologist anxiety, repeat biopsies, and amount of cores taken during AS. Subsequently, this will reduce morbidity, bleeding, erectile dysfunction, and infections related to biopses.
