Micro-Ultrasound for the Detection and Localization of Prostate Cancer Tumors in Patients Undergoing Radical Prostatectomy

About

Brief Summary

This trial studies the ability of micro-ultrasound to detect and characterize prostate cancer tumors in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy (removal of the entire prostate and some of the tissue around it). Usually multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging is used for the detection and targeted therapy of prostate cancer, but its accuracy remains imperfect. Micro-ultrasound may be superior as it provides real-time tumor visualization which may simplify and improve prostate cancer targeted therapy. This may also reduce the need for and substantial costs of radical prostatectomy.
