Evaluate the accuracy of HIT guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy.


The objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of HIT (Hybrid Imaging Technology) guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy. Using a prostate hybrid imaging technology (HIT) which fuses a previously obtained endorectal MR image to transurethral ultrasound (TRUS) image to allow identification and biopsy of tumors by MR imaging in real time. We hypothesis that HIT guided biopsies will accurately localize the foci of prostate cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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).

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).

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.
