[Correspondence] Diagnostic accuracy of the PROMIS study

We commend Hashim Ahmed and colleagues (Jan 19, p 815)1 for their rigorous evaluation of multi-parametric MRI (MP-MRI), which indicated that prostate biopsy can potentially be avoided in approximately 27% of patients with a negative MP-MRI result. Deciding how to proceed with a patient who has a positive MP-MRI result is equally important. Notably, the authors did not compare histopathological correlation for MP-MRI with template prostate mapping biopsy (TPM) to assess whether disease was found in the region of interest.
