Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate a transperineal biopsy approach (outside of the rectum) using MRI targeting to facilitate better access to the whole prostate gland and provide limited risk of infectious complications after biopsy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Device: Artemis™ software system Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy and the second most common cause of cancer death in men in the Western hemisphere. Definitive diagnosis of prostate cancer relies on biopsy of the prostate gland, which is historically performed by taking 12 random biopsies of the prostate by placing a needle through the rectum under ultrasound guidance. Recently, advances in MRI techniques have allowed identification of suspicious lesions within the prostate prior to biopsy, which has given rise to targeting biopsy cores to high-suspicion areas using fused ultrasound-MRI images. However, the most commonly used transrectal approach to biopsy is associated with a growing rate of infectious complications as well as poor sampling of the anterior region of the prostate, which is furthest from the rectum.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MRI Targeted Biopsy Device: Artemis™ software system
Computerized targeting of mpMRI lesions. The computerized co-registration will then be performed by software within the Artemis™ system and will fuse the MR imaging with real-time ultrasound imaging.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Core cancer length [ Time Frame: 2 Months ]
    Greater tumor length per core provides better diagnostic information

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Detection rate of high-grade prostate cancer measured using Gleason Score [ Time Frame: 2 Months ]
    Gleason score > 6; a score that is the sum of the two Gleason grades assigned to a prostate tumor and that is based on a scale of 2 to 10 with the lowest numbers indicating a slow-growing tumor unlikely to spread and the highest numbers indicating an aggressive tumor.
