Why PI-RADS Matters

In recent years, the role for multiparametric MRI in prostate cancer detection and management has expanded. Ongoing research shows that potential for multiparametric MRI to help reduce instances of overtreatment and understaging. One barrier to mainstream implementation has been a lack of standardization in the interpretation and reporting of multiparametric MRI exams. However, the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) helps to solve that problem. […]

WSJ: Should MRI to Detect Prostate Cancer Become Standard of Care?

A growing body of evidence proves MRI can effectively identifysuspicious lesions prior to biopsy. MRI generally does not detect indolent tumors that do not require treatment and can guide biopsy needles for more precise targeting. This reduces the necessity for repeat biopsies while increasing detection rates for high-risk, high-grade prostate cancers. However, the practice of using MRI to detect prostate cancer before performing biopsy is not widespread. In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal asks, should it be? […]
