The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the diagnostic performance of biparametric MRI (bpMRI) for detection of prostate cancer (PCa).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: AJR. American journal of roentgenology
The purpose of this article is to review the diagnostic performance of MRI for the detection of pelvic lymph node (LN) metastasis in patients with bladder and prostate cancer.
The objective of our study was to investigate the diagnostic performance of prebiopsy biparametric MRI (bpMRI) and prostate-specific antigen density (PSAD) for Gleason score (GS) 7 or greater prostate...
Oligorecurrent prostate cancer with exclusive nodal involvement represents a common state of disease, amenable to local therapy. New radio-labeled tracers have enriched the possibility of cancer detec...
STHLM3-MR Phase 2 is a study comparing traditional prostate cancer detection using PSA and systematic biopsies with the improved pipeline for prostate cancer detection using the STHLM3 tes...
The optimal number of prostate cores extracted during a prostate biopsy performed because of a suspected prostate cancer is still debated. The present consensus is to sample 12 cores. Howe...
The aim of this study is to investigate safety and diagnostic performance of the 68Ga labeled PET tracer [68Ga]RM2 for detection and localization of primary prostate cancer confirmed by hi...
The current standard for Prostate Cancer (PCa) detection remains taking 10-12 systematic biopsies of the prostate. This approach leads to overdiagnosis of insignificant PCa on the one hand...
This is a Phase II trial to determine cancer detection rate of conventional/systematic versus targeted biopsy methods in diagnosis of potentially lethal prostate cancer. This is a diagnos...
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
An organized procedure carried out by a select committee of professionals in evaluating the performance of other professionals in meeting the standards of their specialty. Review by peers is used by editors in the evaluation of articles and other papers submitted for publication. Peer review is used also in the evaluation of grant applications. It is applied also in evaluating the quality of health care provided to patients.
A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
