    I'll reinforce Djin's comment about the number of samples taken. Make sure the standard 12 sample array is taken in addition to those targeting the PIRADS4 area. Often MRI's miss significant cancer. I know it does not seem fortunate, but you are fortunate if you find it the first time.

    Also, ask the doctor if the PIRADS4 is in a reachable location. Some areas of the prostate are difficult to reach with the biopsy.
