Objective: Prostate specific antigen (PSA) PSA density (dPSA) is a PSA derivative used for increasing the accuracy of PSA. dPSA is calculated by dividing the prostate volume measured with transrectal ultrasonography by the total PSA value. In this study, we evaluated the role of dPSA in the prediction of radical therapy requirement in localised prostate cancer.
