Thanks Tony, scans cannot tell us which types as far as I know, imagine a newer pathologists trying to figure out what types? Hey I need to update this to mention that these variants are the more unusual presentations of patients with PCa's. Herein a link to the type most of us will be found with:
Called: acini or acinar verision (most common ) www.phoenix5.org/glossary/acini.html
Usually this is mentioned on pathology reports(acinar or whatever type), depending upon how detailed that is. Let me mention that pathology reports and info on them can be widely different or lacking compared to the 'experts' and the data they list and how they list it all. My brothers patho report is somewhat laughable in comparison to mine as to the total info given, but also he is diagnosed with 'indolent' version of PCa. I don't think it was mentioned as to which type he was found with, on his report.
