Given the elevated PSA level and the irregular areas on MRI, there is a good chance that a routine biopsy without MRI guidance can detect cancer if it is present. But an MRI guided biopsy will be more precise. If your insurance will cover the MRI guided biopsy then you should go for it. If they won't cover it, then just do the routine biopsy by ultrasound guidance. Hope this helps.
