PURPOSE To investigate whether the use of transaxial and coronal MR imaging improves the ability to localize the apex of the prostate and the anterior part of the rectum compared to the use of transaxial CT alone, and whether the incorporation of MR could improve the coverage of the prostate by the radiotherapy field and change the volume of rectum irradiated. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten consecutive patients with localized prostate carcinoma underwent a CT and an axial and coronal MR scan in… CONTINUE READING
