Abstract

 

 

This narrative review summarizes the current knowledge about multiparametric and biparametric magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate. This is provided from both a radiological and a urological point of view analyzing the technical aspects of fusion-targeted biopsy using the transperineal approach. We report practical considerations concerning pure cognitive and software-assisted settings, discuss the principal transperineal fusion software now available, and debate the pros and cons of choosing one approach over the other.
