Abstract

Needle biopsy of the prostate has a pivotal role in the diagnosis of prostate cancer and the prediction of outcome. Strategies for sampling the prostate are being refined, which will increase the diagnostic yield. In combination with other clinical factors, the pathologic findings obtained from the biopsy specimen provide enhanced predictive accuracy for stage and individual outcome.
