Prospective Cohort Study of the Ability of MRI/DTI to Diagnose Prostate Cancer

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine if investigators can improve diagnosis of prostate cancer by using MRI/DTI?

Description

This is a prospective cohort study of the ability of MRI/DTI to diagnose prostate cancer in men undergoing prostate MRI.

Study design: Male adults who are scheduled to undergo MRI of the prostate, for clinical reasons, will be subjected to additional 10 minutes of image acquisition inside the MRI machine. The added MRI/DTI acquisition does not involve injection of additional contrast material. Investigators will compare between ability of the full mp-MRI images to diagnose prostate cancer to that of the MRI/DTI images

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
