Abstract

In the Netherlands a population-based screening program was denied by the government. Based on progressive research in the detection of significant prostate cancer using prostate MRI and identification of risk groups that need treatment because they are at risk for aggressive prostate cancer, we propose a program where men with high-risk tumours are identified and treated at an earlier stage. It has to be determined if this program leads to a lower prostate cancer mortality and a reduction in costs.
