... The definitive investigation to detect prostate cancer is transrectal ultrasound-guided (TRUS) prostate biopsies, which remain the gold standard investigation (Turner and Pati, 2010).

NICE Guidelines (2008) report that GP practices have seen a significant increase in PSA blood testing in asymptomatic men, and an estimation between 56 000 and 86 000 needle biopsies are performed on an annual basis, this number is set to increase. ...
