Quantitative MR imaging assessment of prostate gland deformation before and during MR imaging-guided brachytherapy.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors performed this study to document the deformations that occur between pretreatment magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and intraoperative MR imaging during brachytherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images obtained at 1.5 and 0.5 T in 10 patients with prostate cancer were analyzed for changes in the shape and substructure of… (More)
