The authors present a biosensor intended to evaluate prostatic stiffness. The stiffness of the prostate was modulated using hormonal induction and adrenergic stimulation. The results show that the sensor can be sufficiently accurate to discriminate between soft prostates used as controls and those stiffened with hormones. The modulation produced by an adrenergic agent on prostatic stiffness was detected using this system. An electrical model was constructed embodying the parameters of prostatic stiffness, micturition frequency, and volume, demonstrating that prostatic stiffness correlates with micturition frequency.
