Summary

This trial aims to test a screening method for detecting aggressive prostate cancer. It combines genetic data to assess cancer risk with MRI scans to identify men with high-grade cancer. The trial seeks to determine if this

Who is the study for?
This trial is for men being screened for prostate cancer. It's especially focused on those who might have a higher genetic risk, determined by their Polygenic Risk Score (PRS). Participants will undergo an mpMRI scan and a PSA blood test to assess their cancer risk and need regular follow-ups based on these results.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing if combining genetic data with mpMRI can better identify serious prostate cancers that could be life-threatening. It also explores the best age for MRI screening and if deep learning improves predictions when genetic risks are known.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves non-invasive procedures like MRI scans and blood tests, side effects are minimal but may include discomfort during the MRI or minor bruising from blood draws.
