Deformable image registration for the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy in prostate treatment planning.


PURPOSE There is now convincing evidence that prostate cancer cells lack the ability to produce and accumulate citrate. Using magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging (MRSI), regions of absent or low citrate concentration in the prostate can be visualized at a resolution of a few mm. This new advancement provides not only a tool for early diagnosis and… (More)
