In patients with PSA levels of 4-10 ng/mL, it is
difficult to distinguish prostate cancer (PCa) from
prostatitis. So our study is to evaluate the role of
multiparametric MRI (mp-MRI) in detection of PCa and
prediction of PCa incidence in patients with total PSA
levels of 4C10 ng/mL by a prospective cohort study.
Mp-MRI showed excellent area under the ROC curve,
suggesting obviously clinically relevant predictive
characteristics. Furthermore, with 137 months of
follow-up, higher score of mp-MRI was proved to be
significantly associated with a greater risk of
detection rate of PCa.
