OBJECTIVE To provide insight into the impact of radical prostatectomy (RP) on prostate cancer-specific mortality (PCSM) in a primarily prostate-specific antigen screen-detected cohort of men with localized prostate cancer (PCa). METHODS Between 2000 and 2013, 1864 men consented to participate in a prospective longitudinal outcomes study after RP for(More)
We present a novel method for the joint segmentation of anatomical and functional images. Our proposed methodology unifies the domains of anatomical and functional images, represents them in a product lattice, and performs simultaneous delineation of regions based on random walk image segmentation. Furthermore, we also propose a simple yet effective(More)
Focal therapy of prostate cancer is an evolving treatment strategy that destroys a predefined region of the prostate gland that harbors clinically significant disease. Although long-term oncologic control has yet to be demonstrated, focal therapy is associated with a marked decrease in treatment-related morbidity. Focal laser ablation is an emerging(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence supports the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-ultrasound fusion-targeted prostate biopsy (MRF-TB) to improve the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa) while limiting detection of indolent disease compared to systematic 12-core biopsy (SB). OBJECTIVE To compare MRF-TB and SB results and investigate(More)
PURPOSE MRF-TB (magnetic resonance imaging-ultrasound fusion targeted prostate biopsy) may improve the detection of prostate cancer in men presenting for prostate biopsy. We report clinical outcomes of 12-core systematic biopsy and MRF-TB in men who presented for primary biopsy and further describe pathological characteristics of cancers detected by(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiparametric-MRI (mp-MRI) is an evolving noninvasive imaging modality that increases the accurate localization of prostate cancer at the time of MRI targeted biopsy, thereby enhancing clinical risk assessment, and improving the ability to appropriately counsel patients regarding therapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS We used MEDLINE/PubMed to(More)
OBJECT Automated eye movement tracking may provide clues to nervous system function at many levels. Spatial calibration of the eye tracking device requires the subject to have relatively intact ocular motility that implies function of cranial nerves (CNs) III (oculomotor), IV (trochlear), and VI (abducent) and their associated nuclei, along with the(More)
OBJECTIVE To report outcomes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-ultrasound fusion-targeted biopsy (MRF-TB) and 12-core systematic biopsy (SB) over a 26-month period in men with prior negative prostate biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between June 2012 and August 2014, 210 men presenting to our institution for prostate biopsy with ≥1 prior negative biopsy(More)
PURPOSE The objectives of this study were to 1) describe the patterns of repeat prostate biopsy in men with a previous negative biopsy and 2) identify predictors of prostate cancer diagnosis on repeat biopsy in these men. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a university faculty group practice we identified 1,837 men who underwent prostate biopsy between January 1,(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW In recent years, multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) of the prostate has shown promise as a modality to identify areas of suspicion within the gland which correlate with cancer location and disease extent. However, optimal individualization of prostate biopsy using mpMRI relies on aligning the relative benefits of(More)
