2019 JUN 14 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Daily -- Investigators publish new report on Oncology - Prostate Cancer. According to news reporting originating from Bethesda, United States, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “Although the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2 (PI-RADSv2) has been widely adopted and is generally considered a success, it has clear limitations.”

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from National Cancer Institute, “The purpose of this article is to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of PI-RADSv2 and discuss ways that it can be improved. PI-RADSv2 has improved standardization of acquisition and interpretation of prostate MR images.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Although it improves the detection of clinically significant cancers, its subjectivity and intrareader variability limit its accuracy and reproducibility, causing concerns regarding its reliability.”
