PURPOSE To determine whether multiparametric magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can help identify patients with prostate cancer who would most appropriately be candidates for active surveillance (AS) according to current guidelines and to compare the results with those of conventional clinical assessment scoring systems, including the D'Amico, Epstein, and(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the performance of calculated high b value diffusion-weighted images (DWI) derived from regular lower b value DWI using exponential diffusion decay models (intravoxel incoherent motion = IVIM and diffusional kurtosis = DK) is comparable to acquired high b value DWI in prostate cancer detection. MATERIALS AND METHODS One(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To determine if intraprostatic injection of gadofosveset trisodium mixed with human serum albumin (HSA) can identify sentinel lymph nodes (LNs) draining the prostate on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a canine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three male canines weighing between 25.7 and 41.3 kg were anesthetized, placed in a 3-T(More)
PURPOSE To objectively compare quantitative parameters related to image quality attained at coronary magnetic resonance (MR) angiography of the right coronary artery (RCA) performed at 7 T and 3 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained, and volunteers provided signed informed consent. Ten healthy adult volunteers (mean age(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies of mechanical strain anomalies in myocardial infarction (MI) have been largely limited to analysis of one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) strain parameters. Advances in cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) methods now permit a complete three-dimensional (3D) interrogation of myocardial regional strain. The aim of(More)
PURPOSE T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly used for anatomical visualization in the pelvis area, such as the prostate, with high soft-tissue contrast. MRI can also provide functional information such as diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) which depicts the molecular diffusion processes in biological tissues. The combination of anatomical(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to determine the optimal dose of ferumoxytol for performing MR lymphography (MRL) at 3 T in patients with prostate cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This phase I trial enrolled patients undergoing radical prostatectomy (RP) with bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND). Three groups of five patients each (total of(More)
PURPOSE In recent years, fusion of multi-parametric MRI (mp-MRI) with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy has enabled targeted prostate biopsy with improved cancer yield. Target identification is solely based on information from mp-MRI, which is subsequently transferred to the subject coordinates through an image registration approach. mp-MRI has(More)
