About The Prostate Health Index:
The Prostate Health Index (phi) is a test that utilizes the combination of three blood tests to produce a "phi score." The test was designed for men who have a PSA between 4 and 10 ng/ml. Research has shown that phi provides more accurate information than PSA alone at determining which individuals may need a prostate biopsy and which individuals have an elevated PSA that is more likely due a benign condition, such as normal prostate growth, or an infection in the prostate.
Below are several resources designed to help patients and their family better understand how phi is used in a clinical setting, including a video as well as downloadable brochures.
