OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to investigate the changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in prostate cancers before and after radiotherapy at 3 T using a phased-array coil. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-nine patients with biopsy-proven prostate cancer who received radiotherapy underwent diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) at 3 T and were included in the study. Biopsies in all patients were performed before the initial MRI examination (range, 15-35 days before MRI; mean… CONTINUE READING
