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.

Perceptions of Prostate MRI and Fusion Biopsy of Radiation Oncologists and Urologists for Patients Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer: Results from a National Survey.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate and fusion biopsy have been advanced to improve the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa). Yet, frequency of their use and contempo...

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...

Radioligand therapy of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: current approaches.

Prostate Cancer is the forth most common type of cancer. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is anchored in the cell membrane of prostate epithelial cells. PSMA is highly expressed on prostate e...

Long-term outcomes in 1121 Australian prostate cancer patients treated with definitive radiotherapy.

Optimal definitive treatment of prostate cancer is controversial, especially in high-risk patients. We report the largest prospective cohort of Australian patients treated with radiotherapy for locali...

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...

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).
