First described by Astraldi in 1937, transrectal ultrasound
guided prostate biopsy (TRUS biopsy) allows tissue samples of the prostate to be obtained for histological analysis to confirm or exclude the presence of prostate cancer.
While indications suggest that the use of the multiparametric MRI technology is more accurate than a transrectal ultrasound
biopsy in the identification of cancer, findings have shown that its sensitivity for picking up clinically significant tumors in the peripheral zone (or outer area) of the prostate was 85% and just 62% in the transition zone (or innermost section) of the prostate.
