PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the magnetic resonance prostate imaging reporting and data system (PI-RADS) for the detection of prostate cancer by the results of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided biopsy of the prostate as a reference standard. PATIENTS AND METHODS In 55 patients who had undergone MRI-guided biopsy of the prostate,(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to non-invasively analyze tumor aggressiveness is an important predictor for individual treatment stratification and patient outcome in prostate cancer (PCA). PURPOSE To evaluate: (i) whether apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), the T2 signal intensity (SI), and a combination of both parameters allow for an improved discrimination(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare radiation exposure and image quality between dedicated computed tomography (CT) protocols for preoperative total hip arthroplasty (THA) planning. METHODS Three protocols with automated tube current modulation using 64-slice (n = 177) and 128-slice CT scanners without (n = 129) and with automated tube voltage(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate specimen quality and diagnostic differences between magnetic resonance (MR) compatible 16 G and 18 G biopsy needles in MR-guided biopsy (MRGB) of the prostate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Semiautomatic MR compatible biopsy needles with a diameter of 16 G (Group A) or 18 G (Group B) were used to perform MRGB in 88 patients with suspected(More)
OBJECTIVES To intraindividually compare image quality and diagnostic performance of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) at 3T for the detection of prostate cancer (PCa) using a pelvic phased-array coil (PAC) and a combined endorectal and pelvic phased-array coil (ERC-PAC). METHODS Forty-five patients were prospectively included and received mpMRI of the prostate(More)
Background Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography has recently been shown to successfully visualize periprostatic tracts allegedly representing the neurovascular bundle. Purpose To examine the impact of different fractional anisotropy (FA) thresholds on the results of DTI tractography in the male pelvis as well as to evaluate the resulting specificity(More)
