Brief Summary:
MultiSpectral 3 Tesla MRI (MS3TMRI) can increase the yield of Trans Rectal Ultrasound Biopsy (TRUSBx) to improve identification of patients on active surveillance requiring treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Other: MS3TMRI Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective single arm study. 120 patients at risk for significant occult prostate cancer on an active surveillance program will undergo MS3TMRI followed by a standard TRUSBx and additional biopsies guided by the MS3TMRI results. The positive predictive value (PPV) of MS3TMRI-TRUSBx for cancer requiring consideration of therapy will be compared to the PPV of TRUSBx alone. MS3TMRI consists of T2, diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCEMRI), proton MR spectroscopy (MRS) interpreted by a radiologist and by CAD methods validated on whole mount prostate specimens.

Multispectral 3 Tesla MRI imaging with contrast followed by biopsy
Other Name: Multispectral 3 Tesla MRI imaging

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Positive Predictive Value (PPV) of MS3TMRI-TRUSBx for detection of a patient with a cancer burden requiring consideration of immediate therapy. [ Time Frame: The outcome measure will be evaluated at the time of the results of the TRUSbx which will be approximately 2 weeks after the biopsy ]
    Compare the targeted biopsy to the random biopsies

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The number of cores required for diagnosis of prostate cancer for MS3TMRI-TRUSBx versus TRUSBx alone [ Time Frame: The outcome measure will be evaluated at the time of the results of the TRUSbx which will be approximately 2 weeks after the biopsy ]
