BACKGROUND Recently the potential of magnetic resonance (MR) methods for non-invasive diagnosis and therapy evaluation of prostate cancer has improved substantially. In this study proton MR spectroscopy (1H MRS) was explored for the detection of cancer in the prostate. PATIENTS AND METHODS Employing an endorectal probe localized 1H MRS and contrast enhanced MR imaging was performed on the prostate of healthy volunteers and of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and/or prostate… CONTINUE READING
