Abstract
P rostate cancer (PCa) is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in men. Actually, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and digital rectal examination (DRE), are the most accepted tools for screening. PSA is known to be prostate specific, but not PCa specific. It is controversial the appropriate level of serum PSA that triggers an invasive approach by a template TRUS- guided biopsy. This technique lacks in sensitivity with a 30-45% risk of ?up or down-staging? of PCa. The recent development in imaging field, suggest the emerging role of the multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (mpMRI) as tool for the diagnosis of PCa. MpMRI consist in the combination of functional study, such as, diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), dynamic contrast enhanced imaging (DCE-MRI), MR spectroscopy (MRS), and the morphological, by T2-weigheted imaging. This technique provides crucial information regarding tumour location, volume, grade and extension. Thus mpMRI can find a possible role to guide biopsies, in order to improve the identification of aggressive tumor. Furthermore, in the case of low grade tumor, this technique represents an optimal tool for the active surveillance. Here, we highlight the mpMRI as ?imaging biomarker? in the diagnosis, staging, grading and treatment planning of prostate cancer and we discuss its alternative role to TRUS-guided biopsy
