This study involved the technical development and clinical testing of a novel technique for magnetic resonance imaging MRI guided prostate biopsy in a 1.5T horizontal bore scanner using a dedicated interventional table. We primarily hypothesize that the integration of diagnostic and interventional MRI enables needle biopsy targeting to foci of tumor recurrence after radiotherapy, and will enable a determination of the diagnostic accuracy of MRI in mapping sub-sites of tumor recurrence after radiotherapy.
