PURPOSE To evaluate sensitivity and specificity of proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy of the prostate with external surface coil elements at 3 T for differentiation of cancer from healthy tissue within an acceptable measurement time, by using histopathologic findings as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was approved by the institutional review board; informed consent was obtained. Forty-five men (age range, 51-70 years) underwent 3-T MR imaging with external… CONTINUE READING
