Determining the volume of prostatic carcinoma: value of MR imaging with an external-array coil.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The size of prostatic carcinomas, as determined by estimations of the tumor volume, has a direct correlation with the histologic grade and stage. Therefore, accurate information about tumor volume can play an important role in determining appropriate treatment and establishing a patient's prognosis. Accordingly, we performed a study to assess the… (More)
