The purpose of this study is
- to propose an algorithm for early detection of patients with advanced prostate cancer who are at risk of developing osteoporosis.
Patients with advanced prostate cancer are included at the initiating of androgen deprivation therapy.
The patients are followed for 2 years after inclusion with blood sampling, DXA-scan, questionnaire, bone scintigraphy.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
blood sampling, DXA-scan, bone scintigraphy

The number of metastases in a patient with primary or recurrent prostate cancer has major prognostic implication. The purpose is to compare, in a pilot study, the diagnostic performance o...
Bone scintigraphy is currently a reference test in the initial staging of cancer. Bone scintigraphy historically consists in a planar whole-body scintigraphy (WBS). SPECT/CT has been shown...
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...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as radionuclide imaging using calcium-41 (41Ca) chloride aqueous solution, may help predict progressive disease in patients with prostate cancer and ...
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...
Bone scintigraphy is a method of choice in evaluating metastatic disease in patients with prostatic cancer. We describe the case of a 77-year-old man who was subjected to bone scan for evaluation of s...
Radium-223 is an approved survival-prolonging treatment option in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and bone metastases. In the registration trial (ALSYMPCA), no regular imaging wa...
To establish the utility of baseline F-Fluorocholine (FCH) PET/CT and bone scintigraphy (BS) in the outcome prediction of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer and bone metastases (CRPC-B...
Heterotopic ossification is a rare phenomenon that refers to formation of bone outside the skeletal system. We present a 61-year-old woman who suffered from peritoneal cancer surgery 2 years ago, refe...
Three-phase bone scintigraphy is sometimes of great value in the detection of uncharacteristic metastases and assists the management of patients in terms of primary focus detection. While evaluating t...
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
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.
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.
