Background/Aims/Objectives: In patients elected to the first prostate biopsy set, the risk of prostate cancer (PCA) may be predicted by clinical factors. The aim of this study was to investigate on prostate volume index (PVI), defined as the ratio of volume of the transitional zone to the volume of the peripheral zone, and PCA risk. Confirmatory studies are required.

Abstract

Background/Aims/Objectives: In patients elected to the first prostate biopsy set, the risk of prostate cancer (PCA) may be predicted by clinical factors. The aim of this study was to investigate on prostate volume index (PVI), defined as the ratio of volume of the transitional zone to the volume of the peripheral zone, and PCA risk. Confirmatory studies are required.
