The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the diagnostic performance of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging (DCEI) at 3T in predicting locally recurrent prostate cancer after radiation therapy. Twenty-four patients with a rising prostate-specific antigen level after treatment with radiation therapy underwent prostate MR imaging at 3T, followed by transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy. MRI findings and biopsy results were correlated in six prostate… CONTINUE READING
