The purpose of this study is to image human prostate tissue using a new transrectal photoacoustic imaging probe and correlate this with ultrasound and MRI imaging performed once the specimen has been surgically removed. We hope to see what we can visualize with our device as this has never been done before. Eventually, we hope to use a similar device to image the prostate in men being seen by their doctor for prostate cancer.


Inclusion Criteria: - VA male patients of any ethnic background, 18-80 years old, diagnosed with clinically localized prostate cancer who desire prostatectomy. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients who cannot tolerate a surgical prostatectomy due to medical comorbidities or cannot give informed consent for our study.
