MRI-Guided Placement of Imaging Markers in Patients With Prostate Cancer Undergoing External-Beam Radiation Therapy

RATIONALE: Using MRI to guide placement of markers in the prostate may help in planning radiation therapy for patients with prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the s...

Image Guided Radiation Therapy For Prostate Cancer

During the 7 to 8 weeks of conformal radiotherapy for prostate carcinoma, the prostate has an intra-pelvic motion which is not detectable by the conventional portal imaging. This prostate ...

Evaluation of Treatment Response Using Multiparametric MRI After Prostate Radiotherapy

The purpose of this study is to better understand prostate cancer changes after radiation treatment, through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI is an imaging test that allows doctors to...

Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage I, Stage II, or Stage III Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. It is not yet known whether radiation therapy to the prostate and pelvis is more effective than radiation therap...

Incorporating MR Imaging Into Prostate Radiotherapy Treatment Planning

This research study is evaluating whether a standard prostate MRI examination can improve radiation therapy planning for prostate cancer.

Technique of Multiparametric MR Imaging of the Prostate.

Multiparametric MR imaging provides detailed anatomic assessment of the prostate as well as information that allows the detection and characterization of prostate cancer. To obtain high-quality MR ima...

The Current State of MR Imaging-targeted Biopsy Techniques for Detection of Prostate Cancer.

Systematic transrectal ultrasonography (US)-guided biopsy is the standard approach for histopathologic diagnosis of prostate cancer. However, this technique has multiple limitations because of its ina...

Prostate cancer is the most common male malignant tumor in Germany, which thus places growing demands on differentiated imaging and risk-adapted therapeutic approaches. Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) of ...

Role of Prostate MR Imaging in Radiation Oncology.

The use of prostate MR imaging in radiotherapy continues to evolve. This article describes its current application in the selection of treatment regimens, integration in treatment planning or simulati...

Effective Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen-Based 18F-DCFPyL-Guided Cryoablation of a Single Positive Site in a Patient Believed to Be More Metastatic on 11C-Choline PET/CT.

PET/CT-guided interventions using specific radiotracers are promising for detecting avid lesions not well visualized with other imaging methods. A 72-year-old man who initially presented with prostate...

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.

Non-invasive imaging methods based on the mechanical response of an object to a vibrational or impulsive force. It is used for determining the viscoelastic properties of tissue, and thereby differentiating soft from hard inclusions in tissue such as microcalcifications, and some cancer lesions. Most techniques use ultrasound to create the images - eliciting the response with an ultrasonic radiation force and/or recording displacements of the tissue by Doppler ultrasonography.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

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).
