Prostate Cancer Screening Trial using A Group of Radiological Approaches including MRI and ultrasound
Design and Objective
This is a prospective, population-based, paired screening positive cohort study investigating a fast MRI scan in comparison to PSA for prostate cancer screening. The study is designed to determine the positive test rate of MRI at different thresholds. Secondary objectives include the proportion diagnosed with clinically-significant and insignificant prostate cancer and point estimates for sensitivity, specificity, PPV and NPV.
Key inclusion criteria
Men aged 50-69 years without a recent history of previous PSA screening tests or prostate cancer. No evidence of a urinary tract infection or history of acute prostatitis within the last 6 months or contraindication to MRI.
