    There is no generally available non-invasive method that detect PC.

    I was reading that Harvard, IIIRC, has a special setup of a 3T MRI, custom endo coil, and contrast that they said can see it. And they said that 3 or 4 other places in the country might be able to do it.

    But they where using it to track PC on people that where doing Active Surveillance instead of immediate treatment. And not for finding it.
