Modern Imaging Techniques in the Diagnosis and Management of Prostate Cancer

Modern Imaging Techniques in the Diagnosis and Management of Prostate Cancer

Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is being considered as a game-changer in prostate cancer treatment and management. Our prostate cancer panel of Mike Scott, Tony Crispino, Allen Edel and Joel Nowak is talking to Dr. Antonio Carlos Westphalen about the current roles of MRI and mpMRI in diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. The panel will touch upon current roles of older forms of bone scanning and CT as well as discuss the evolving roles of newer imaging techniques in the diagnosis and management of high risk and metastatic prostate cancer. Issues on access to high quality imaging and role of the expert uro-radiologist in diagnosis and management of prostate cancer are some of the other aspects that will be covered in this discussion.

    At the institution where I am being followed for Actuve Surveillance, 3T prostate MRI is now done without IV contrast. How does this affect diagnostic accuracy? If a lesion is identified, should the exam be repeated with IV contrast?

    What are your thoughts on Abbreviated Biparametric Prostate MR Imaging for initial diagnosis? It appears that using this technique could be cost effective in initial screening while saving many men from unnecessary TRUS biopsies.
