Dogs Better than PSA screening

In this remarkable study, a dog was trained to identify the urine of men with PC vs men without PC. The dog was then given the urine of 66 men to sniff- 33 known to have PC and 33 known to be PC free. The dog correctly identified 30 of the 33 men with PC. Of the 3 misidentified, 1 was found to have PC upon biopsy. Sensitivity and specificity of 91%! Pretty amazing.
