RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures, such as C-11 choline PET-CT scan, may be effective in finding cancer that has spread to the bone and lymph nodes in patients with prostate cancer. PU...
Patients with castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPCA) with osseous metastatic disease planning to undergo Ra-223 therapy may be eligible for this study. Positron emission tomography (PE...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures, such as PET scan, may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying carb...
The investigators are attempting to determine if a new form of imaging called 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT is helpful to physicians in deciding how to manage suspected prostate cancer recurrence. Thi...
The purpose of this study is to use a new imaging drug called 11C-choline that is used with a PET/CT scan to see prostate cancer when it cannot be seen well on other scans, such as bone sc...
A 76-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer and back pain was referred for palliative radiotherapy. Staging F-fluorocholine PET/CT scan revealed fluorocholine-avid prostate mass, extensive lymph...
Bone scintigraphy is key in imaging skeletal metastases in newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Unfortunately, a notable proportion of scans are not readily classified as positive or negative but deemed i...
The presence of bone metastases has excluded participation of cancer patients in exercise interventions and is a relative contraindication to supervised exercise in the community setting due to concer...
Prostate cancer cells metastasize to the bones, causing ectopic bone formation, which results in fractures and pain. The cellular mechanisms underlying new bone production are unknown. In a recent stu...
Prostate cancer frequently causes bone metastases and skeletal events that impair quality of life (QoL) and survival. The alpha emitter radium-223 is a new drug that improves treatment in men with cas...
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
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.
Tumors or cancer of the pelvic region.
Bones that constitute each half of the pelvic girdle in VERTEBRATES, formed by fusion of the ILIUM; ISCHIUM; and PUBIC BONE.
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.
