Use of MRI to Risk Stratify Patients with Prostate Cancer- Simpa Salami

Details
Simpa Salami, MD discusses the role of MRI in risk stratifying patients with prostate cancer. MRI has revolutionized the ability to detect aggressive prostate cancer but it is still possible that patients who have a negative MRI still have aggressive cancer. Up to 10-15% of patients may have aggressive prostate cancer despite negative findings on MRI. Dr. Salami addresses why these patients may ha...
