Summary

In the long term, focal therapy requires precise imaging for disease localization in order to overcome the morbidity and healthcare resources used in saturation biopsy techniques. This chapter will review the latest evidence for ultrasound imaging of the prostate, including conventional B-mode ultrasound, elastography, or strain imaging, Doppler imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasound and tissue characterization, e.g., sonohistology or histoscanning.
