Prostate Research

Prostate cancer is common in men and much more common as men age. Prostate cancer is a major ongoing health concern, especially with increased life expectancy. Imaging plays an essential role in the clinical management of patients with prostate cancer and imaging research is critical for developing novel treatments and more accurate, early stage diagnosis. An important goal for prostate cancer imaging is more precise disease characterization through the synthesis of functional, anatomic, and molecular imaging data. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and 3T MRI are emerging as an imperative imaging tools in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.
