Abstract

PURPOSE A new clinical pretreatment quantity that closely approximates the true prostate cancer volume is defined. METHODS AND MATERIALS The cancer-specific prostate-specific antigen (PSA), PSA density, prostate cancer volume (VCa), and the volume fraction of the gland involved with carcinoma (VCafx) were calculated for 227 prostate cancer patients… (More)
