About The Study: The results of this systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that integrating magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in prostate cancer screening pathways is associated with a reduced number of unnecessary biopsies and overdiagnosis of insignificant prostate cancer while maintaining clinically significant prostate cancer detection as compared with prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-only screening.
