There's no mention of having an MRI scan _before_ a biopsy.  They're quite good (if it's a 3-Tesla MRI) at finding "regions of concern" (I don't know the technical term, sorry).   They've been shown, a decade ago, to be useful diagnostic tools _before_ a biopsy is done.

There's no mention of MRI-guided biopsies, or "in-bore" biopsies.  They've been shown to be superior to the TRUS biopsies which are still Canadian "standard of care".

I think it's time that Canadian practice reached the standard of _good_ practice, south of the border.
