The current study was designed to test the diagnostic performance of Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET and multiparametric MRI along with clinical parameters in the characterization of prostatic lesions.

The current praxis of diagnosing prostate cancer, with systematic prostate biopsies in men with raised serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, leads to considerable over-diagnosis and over-treat...
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...
We previously observed a positive association between seropositivity for the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis and risk of clinically significant prostate cancer at diagnosis. Here, we examined whether T...
Combined information on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) offers opportunities for improving the performance of screening by risk stratification. We aimed to p...
Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the main cancers that damage males' health severely with high morbidity and mortality, but there is still no ideal molecular marker for the diagnosis and prognosis of p...
To enable the paradigm of mp-MRI before biopsy in all patients with suspected prostate cancer by better selecting patients who will benefit from diagnostic MRI and by improving the perform...
Prostate biopsies are the gold standard for prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis. They are performed according to the results of the measurement of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the serum ...
This randomized clinical trial studies how well visually enhanced education works in improving prostate cancer and treatment knowledge in patients with prostate cancer that has not spread ...
MRI is being increasingly relied upon for detection, staging and management of prostate cancer. In this study patients with risk of prostate cancer will be recommended to have a pelvic MRI...
Patients with primary diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer are randomly divided into two groups. One group receive standard of care ADT continually. Another group receive ADT plus prostate...
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.
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
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).
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
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).

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...
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...
