Peter Choyke, MD, FACR, chief of the Molecular Imaging Program, National Cancer Institute, discusses screening in prostate cancer.

Conducting random biopsies do not make any sense in a modern world, says Choyke. The best strategy to identify high-grade cancer is MRI, he adds.

In terms of when to operate or radiate, practitioners find that the answer is not perfect—there is a learning curve. A lot of this has to do with good communication between the urologist and radiologist, says Choyke.
