Prostate cancer is usually diagnosed with a standard biopsy, which randomly samples the entire prostate with the help of ultrasound. A newer, more targeted approach uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to help identify prostate cancer. A new study examined whether this newer approach, using MRI, was better at detecting prostate cancer, especially high-risk tumors
