To validate a deep-learning (DL) algorithm for automated quantification of prostate cancer on positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and explore the potential of PET/CT measurements as prognostic biomarkers.

Accurate and reliable segmentation of the prostate gland using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has critical importance for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate diseases, especially prostate cancer....
Deep learning methods (DLMs) have recently been proposed to generate pseudo-CT (pCT) for MRI-based dose planning. This study aims to evaluate and compare DLMs (U-Net and generative adversarial network...
In the current clinical care practice, Gleason grading system is one of the most powerful prognostic predictors for prostate cancer (PCa). The grading system is based on the architectural pattern of c...
Lung densitometry is being frequently adopted in CT-based emphysema quantification, yet known to be affected by the choice of reconstruction kernel. This study presents a two-step deep learning archit...
The immune system is of critical importance in the development of cancer. The evasion of destruction by the immune system is one of the emerging hallmarks of cancer. We have built a dataset of 171,166...
Because the diagnostic criteria for prostate cancer are different in the peripheral and the transition zone, prostate segmentation is needed for any computer-aided diagnosis system aimed a...
In this study we will test a new procedure to guide needle biopsies into the prostate gland based on MRI. This study will be conducted in patients who may have recurrence of their cancer i...
This is a prospective data collection of men who are electing to undergo prostate hemi-gland cryoablation. The purpose of this observational research study is to investigate the localized...
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to the proliferation of smooth muscle and epithelial cells of the prostate gland. The enlarged gland has the potential to result in lower urinary ...
Radiation therapy is considered a standard treatment option for the management of localized prostate cancer. Among the 20-30% of patients who recur, there is no consensus on the optimal sa...
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.
A gland in males that surrounds the neck of the URINARY BLADDER and the URETHRA. It secretes a substance that liquefies coagulated semen. It is situated in the pelvic cavity behind the lower part of the PUBIC SYMPHYSIS, above the deep layer of the triangular ligament, and rests upon the RECTUM.
Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
A MACHINE LEARNING paradigm used to make predictions about future instances based on a given set of unlabeled paired input-output training (sample) data.

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...
