This dataset was derived from tracked biopsy sessions using the Artemis biopsy system, many of which included image fusion with MRI targets. Patients received a 3D transrectal ultrasound scan, after which systematic biopsy cores were often sampled using a digital template. Then, nonrigid registration (e.g. “fusion”) was performed between real-time ultrasound and preoperative MRI, enabling biopsy cores to be sampled from MR regions of interest. The Artemis system tracked core locations using encoder kinematics of a mechanical arm, and recorded locations in both MRI and Ultrasound coordinates (MRI coordinates missing from early cases).

MRI targets were defined using multiparametric MRI, e.g. t2-weighted, diffusion-weighted, and perfusion-weighted sequences, and scored on a Likert-like scale with close correspondence to PIRADS version 2. However, only t2 MRI is provided in this dataset, since it was used to trace ROI contours and thus was readily available for export. MR imaging was performed on a 3 Tesla Trio, Verio or Skyra scanner (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany). A transabdominal phased array was used in all cases, and an endorectal coil was used in a subset of cases. The majority of pulse sequences provided are 3D T2:SPC, with TR/TE 2200/203, Matrix/FOV 256 × 205/14 × 14 cm, and 1.5mm slice spacing. Some cases were instead 3D T2:TSE with TR/TE 3800–5040/101, and some used outside MRI with various T2 protocols.

Ultrasound scans were performed with Hitachi Hi-Vision 5500 7.5 MHz or the Noblus C41V 2-10 MHz end-fire probe. 3D scans were acquired by rotation of the end-fire probe 200 degrees about its axis, and interpolating to resample the volume with 0.36 mm3 resolution.

Patients with suspicion of prostate cancer due to elevated PSA and/or suspicious imaging findings were consecutively accrued. Any patient who underwent or had planned to receive a routine, standard-of-care prostate biopsy at the UCLA Clark Urology Center was included.
