Özet

Purpose: In this study we assessed the relative yield of 10 core biopsy, and the whole range of alternative 8 and 6 core biopsy protocols over that of the classic sextant biopsy protocol. We determined the optimum number of cores per biopsy according to prostate volume in patients who experienced prostate biopsy for the first time.
