IMPROD bpMRI demonstrated a good NPV for sPCa. PSAd improved the NPV mainly among men with equivocal suspicion on IMPROD bpMRI. However, the additional value of PSAd was marginal: the NPV and PPV for IMPROD bpMRI Likert 4–5 score group were 92% and 72%, respectively, while the corresponding values for the best combination strategy were 93% and 67%.
