OBJECTIVE The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the detection rate of local radiorecurrent prostate cancer by using diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) and targeted biopsies. The secondary purpose was to assess the value of performing random biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 42 consecutive patients with biochemical recurrence after external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). At the time of biopsy, the mean age±SD was 67±6 years, median serum prostate-specific antigen… CONTINUE READING
