TU-G-134-05: MRI Characteristics of Cobalt Dichloride N-Acetyl Cysteine (C4) as a Contrast Agent Marker for Prostate Brachytherapy.

PURPOSE The use of MRI in post-brachytherapy-implant evaluation is limited due to challenges in localizing dark-appearing seeds in the prostatic stroma. Previous studies showed cobalt dichloride N-acetyl cysteine complex (C4) as a promising positive contrast agent to indicate seed location. In this study, we investigated the potential benefit of using C4… CONTINUE READING
