PURPOSE To assess the accuracy of using several criteria to evaluate endorectal coil magnetic resonance (MR) images for penetration of the prostatic capsule. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients with prostate carcinoma underwent MR imaging and prostatectomy. Specified sites of potential capsular penetration on MR images were blindly evaluated by three readers for six diagnostic criteria. These evaluations were compared with pathologic findings of capsular penetration and were analyzed by… CONTINUE READING
