PURPOSE To determine the individual and combined performance of magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopic imaging and diffusion-weighted (DW) imaging at 3 T in the in vivo assessment of prostate cancer aggressiveness by using histopathologically defined regions of interest on radical prostatectomy specimens to define the prostate cancer regions to be investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS The local institutional ethics review board approved this retrospective study and waived the informed consent… CONTINUE READING
