A recent UCLA study shows that MRI-guided biopsy is best for determining future risk of prostate cancer.
Many men who are diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer are recommended for "active surveillance" to monitor their slow-growing tumors. Now, a UCLA study led by Dr. Leonard Marks, professor of urology, has shown that the best way to proceed is by starting out with an MRI-guided prostate biopsy. The results of the study were published in JAMA. The work, which began in 2009, has been funded by grants from the National Cancer Institute and private philanthropy. UCLA Health Newsroom >
