By using a multiparametric approach to investigate the in-vivo and ex-viso characteristics of prostate cancer a better understanding of prostate cancer aggressiveness and tumor staging can be realized. This radiological-pathological correlation will assist in detection, localization, assessment of the tumor microenvironment. Such a comprehensive approach offers more power to evaluate prostate disease than any single measure alone.
