This study investigated the efficacy of the elastography strain ratio (ESR) as a predictor of prostate cancer (PCa) in targeted prostate biopsy. In total, 257 patients who underwent magnetic resonance imaging-targeted biopsy were enrolled. Before biopsy, we placed regions of interest (zone A and B) in the lesion and levator ani. The ESR was measured as zone A/zone B. Multivariate analyses were performed to predict PCa and clinically significant PCa. There were 206 (71.5%) positive cancer lesions. No difference in digit rectal examination findings was found between patients with and without PCa. For predicting clinically significant PCa, an ESR ≥ 6.8 was significantly higher in the PCa (+) group than in the PCa (-) group (p < 0.001). The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) for the conventional variables (model 1) plus the ESR was 0.845, which was significantly higher than that for model 1 (p = 0.001). In prostate imaging reporting and data system score 3 lesions, an ESR ≥ 4.6 was a significant predictor of PCa (p = 0.002). The AUC in model 1 plus the ESR was 0.856, which was significantly higher than that in model 1 alone (p = 0.017). The ESR is useful for predicting clinically significant PCa.
