Prostate Health Index Reflex, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Aiding in distinguishing prostate cancer from benign prostate conditions in men with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) concentrations in the 4 to 10 ng/mL range and digital rectal examination (DRE) findings that are not suspicious for cancer

 

Calculation of prostate health index (phi) as a part of a reflex test when PSA concentrations are between 4 and 10 ng/mL

Highlights

Prostate health index (phi) may be used to determine the probability of prostate cancer on biopsy in men with total prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the 4.0 to 10.0 ng/mL range.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test begins with the analysis of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). If the PSA concentration is between 2.0 and 10.0 ng/mL, then the reflex test will be performed at an additional charge.

 

If the initial PSA concentration is between 2.0 and 10.0 ng/mL, then free PSA and [-2]pro-PSA isoform results will be reported.

 

If the initial PSA concentration is between 4.0 and 10.0 ng/mL, then the percent free PSA result and prostate health index (phi) will be calculated and reported.

 

If the initial PSA concentration is between 2.0 and 4.0 ng/mL, then the percent free PSA result and prostate health index (phi) will not be calculated or reported.
