Summary of "How Would MRI-Targeted Prostate Biopsy Alter Radiation Therapy Approaches in Treating Prostate Cancer?"

To determine if MRI/ultrasound fusion-targeted prostate biopsy (TB) would lead to increased recommendations of aggressive radiotherapy treatments for higher risk prostate cancer compared to systematic biopsy (SB) results.

Perceptions of Prostate MRI and Fusion Biopsy of Radiation Oncologists and Urologists for Patients Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer: Results from a National Survey.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate and fusion biopsy have been advanced to improve the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa). Yet, frequency of their use and contempo...

The added value of systematic biopsy in men with suspicion of prostate cancer undergoing multiparametric MRI-targeted biopsy.

Incorporation of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and targeted biopsy (TBx) in the diagnostic pathway for prostate cancer (CaP) is rapidly becoming common practice. In men with a pre...

Evaluating the Cost-Effectiveness of Hydrogel Rectal Spacer in Prostate Cancer Radiotherapy.

A hydrogel rectal spacer (HRS) is a medical device approved by the FDA to increase the separation between the prostate and rectum. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of HRS use for reduction i...

Predicting Gleason Group Progression for Men on Prostate Cancer Active Surveillance: The Role of a Negative Confirmatory MRI-US Fusion Biopsy.

Active surveillance (AS) has gained acceptance as an alternative to definitive therapy for many men with prostate cancer (PCa). Confirmatory biopsies to assess the appropriateness of AS are routinely ...

Controversies in MR targeted biopsy: alone or combined, cognitive versus software-based fusion, transrectal versus transperineal approach?

To review the evidence addressing current controversies around prostate biopsy. Specific questions explored were (1) mpMRI targeted (TgBx) alone versus combined with systematic (SBx) biopsy; (2) cogni...

Comparative Analysis of Transperineal Versus Transrectal Approaches for MRI-Targeted Biopsy of the Prostate for the Detection and Characterization of Prostate Cancer

The purpose of this study is to investigate a transperineal biopsy approach (outside of the rectum) using MRI targeting to facilitate better access to the whole prostate gland and provide ...

MRI Targeted Focal Laser Thermal Therapy of Prostate Cancer

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of MRI guided focal prostate cancer laser ablation in males, ages 45-80 with biopsy confirmed early clinical stag...

Randomized Study Comparing MR-guided in Bore Versus MRI/US Fusion-guided Prostate Biopsy

The hypothesis of the study is that targeted MRI/US fusion-guided prostate biopsy with additional systematic transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy significantly detects more prostate...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).

Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.

Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.
