Protocol Summary

Protocol No.: OCR41608

Sponsor Protocol No.: EVU-2021-001; OPTIMUM; UF-GU-006

Protocol Title.: Optimization of Prostate Biopsy - Micro-Ultrasound Versus MRI

Principal Investigator: Brisbane, Wayne

Objective: OPTIMUM is a study designed to compare the ability of ultra-high resolution transrectal micro-ultrasound (microUS) and multiparametric MRI (mpMRI)/US fusion to guide prostate biopsy.

Description: The purpose of the Clinical Investigation Plan and Study Protocol is to present information for the OPTIMUM clinical investigation, including the scientific basis for the study, the procedural details, the ExactVu High Resolution Micro-Ultrasound System, its safety details, and administrative details. It has been designed in such a way as to optimize the scientific validity and reproducibility of the results of the study in accordance with current clinical knowledge and practice so as to fulfill the objectives of the investigation.
