Partin Tables: Resources

Named after one of the original authors, the Partin Tables are constructed on the basis of the PSA, stage, grade and surgical findings of over 4,000 men to predict the probability that the prostate cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, seminal vesicles, penetrated the capsule or remains confined to the prostate.

Created in 1997 and updated in 2001, the tables were initially developed by a group of urologists at the Brady Institute for Urology at Johns Hopkins University.

This page provides links to pages at Phoenix5 and other sites where you can learn more about the tables. Some pages are built on the 1997 figures but the text can still explain how the tables are used.
