Abstract: Until now, pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) has proven to be the most accurate and reliable nodal staging procedure in prostate cancer (PCa), as currently available imaging techniques report low sensitivity levels [1]. With the present study, Briganti and coworkers also confirm that in contemporary PCa patients, the accuracy of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan as a preoperative nodal-staging procedure is poor [2]. They promote the use of a risk-stratification model instead of imaging techniques to assess the risk of lymph node invasion (LNI).
