Hybrid Imaging Technique (HIT) Guided Biopsy to Map Prostatic Adenocarcinoma in Patients Undergoing Prostatectomy
The objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of HIT (Hybrid Imaging Technology)
guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy. Using a prostate
hybrid imaging technology (HIT) which fuses a previously obtained endorectal MR image to
transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) image to allow identification and biopsy of tumors by MR
imaging in real time. We hypothesis that HIT guided biopsies will accurately localize the
foci of prostate cancer.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Determine the accuracy of hybrid image technology (HIT) guided biopsies for prostate cancer mapping.
