Study Phase: N/A

Recruitment Status: Enrolling by invitation

Start Date: April 25, 2019

Summary: A prospective, randomized, controlled study designed to assess whether digital virtual reality (VR) models, created from existing CT scans and MRIs, provide surgeons with an improved understanding of their patients' anatomy, resulting in more efficient operations (robotic prostatectomy) and improved patient care.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patient is undergoing robotic prostatectomy being performed by participating surgeon

- Patient is willing to be randomized between intervention and control arms

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients with prior pelvic radiation

- Patients with prior androgen deprivation therapy

- Patients with prior localized ablative therapy

- Patients with prior TURP or other surgical BPH treatment
