3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate with combined pelvic phased-array and endorectal coils; Initial experience(1).

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate at 1.5T has gained acceptance for pretherapeutic staging of prostate cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential clinical utility of combined pelvic phased-array and endorectal coils at 3T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six volunteers were examined on 1.5T and 3T… (More)
