    MR Spectroscopy with MRI Detects Prostate Cancer Recurrence

    AuntMinnie | Wayne Forrest

    Combining MR spectroscopy with T2-weighted MR imaging “significantly improves” the diagnostic accuracy of endorectal MRI to detect locally recurrent prostate cancer after external-beam radiation therapy, according to a study in the August issue of Radiology. Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) concluded that the additional information may help advise patients about subsequent clinical evaluation, and help clinicians select patients for whom targeted prostateside biopsy is appropriate for confirming the disease (Radiology, Vol. 256:2, pp. 485-492).
