Özet

OBJECTIVES To evaluate whether assessment of experimental pain perception using the modified tourniquet test before a biopsy procedure could predict the pain scores during transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy. However, the relationship between the experimental pain assessment before prostate biopsy and the pain scores during the biopsy procedure has not been established.
