Abstract

Digital rectal examination (DRE) is a routine clinical method of diagnosing prostate enlargement. However, it is a subjective and variable technique [1]. To improve its diagnostic utility, an instrumented finger mounted device (the “eFinger”) has been developed to quantify prostate stiffness in vivo. This device has been used to assess different prostate models from a surgical training simulator in vitro.
