Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Introduction: Patients with consistent suspicion for prostate cancer (PCa) and multiple negative prebiopsies prior to multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) are still frequently evaluated for an image-guided biopsy and are reported with heterogeneous detection rates. The inclusion of a systematic biopsy (SB) is also still recommended with predominant sampling within the posterior/peripheral zone of the prostate. The aim of this study was (I) to evaluate PCa detection rates using a modified 10 core SB template including anterior biopsies in combination with mpMRI/ultrasound fusion-guided targeted biopsy (TB) in patients with 3 or more negative prebiopsies and (II) to compare mpMRI index lesion localization with histologically confirmed localization from associated prostatectomy samples. Methods: Overall 1,337 consecutive patients underwent sensor-based registration TB of the prostate and a subsequent 10-core SB between January 2012 and December 2015 at our institution. For this study, 101 patients with ≥3 negative prebiopsies and prostate imaging – reporting data system lesions ≥3 were pooled prospectively and underwent TB and a modified SB including 2 ventral (anterior) biopsies. Detection rates were estimated for the modified SB, TB, and its combination. A subgroup analysis of 35 patients undergoing prostatectomy was performed by a head-to-head comparison of mpMRI index lesion and histologically confirmed PCa index lesion localization. Results: The overall detection rate for PCa was 54.5%. The combination of TB and SB detected 14 (25.4%) more cases missed by TB alone (p < 0.001) and 7 (12.7%) more cases missed by SB alone (p = 0.016), respectively. A postoperative Gleason upgrade was seen in 12/35 (34.3%) cases within the TB group and in 14/35 (40.0%) in the SB group, respectively. The subgroup analysis showed a predominant location of PCa index lesions anteriorly at the level of the midgland. The MRI detection rate of the anteriorly located index lesions was 70.4% (15/21 cases) with a clinically significant Gleason score (≥3 + 4 = 7a [International Society of Urological Pathology grade 2]) in 80.9%. Interestingly a modified SB template detected 90.5% (19/21) of the anteriorly located index lesions. Conclusion: Our data suggest that in patients with multiple prebiopsies PCa seems to be predominantly located anteriorly. We suggest the general integration of anterior biopsies despite TB in repeat biopsy patients.
