2.06.0 = 0 CAPRA
points

6.110.0 = 1 CAPRA
point

10.120.0 = 2 CAPRA
points

20.130.0 = 3 CAPRA
points

higher than 30 = 4 CAPRA
points

(2) highest Gleason score in
biopsies (chose one):

(13) plus (13)= ?...gives 0 CAPRA
points

(13) plus (45)=
?...gives 1 CAPRA point

(45) plus (15)=

(4) percentage of cores that were
