The method of using an endorectal coil in a Prostate Magnetic Resonance
Imaging has been an area of debate between radiologists for some time now, with
a majority of research projects done to compare this method with the use of
phased array coils. In this retrospective project our main objective is to
identify if the temporary deforming effects caused by the use of the endorectal
coil in a Prostate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) procedure may affect biopsy
targeting. We will collect the dimensions measured by the MRI and compare it to
the dimensions measured using the Transrectal Ultrasound procedure (TRUS).
