Multiparametric MRI could guide prostate biopsy decisions

2018 15 May

In the United States, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening is often performed annually, with a low threshold for biopsy and aggressive treatment for detected cancers. Now, the use of multiparametric (functional and anatomical) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being examined for the evaluation of men with an elevated PSA level. The findings... Read more

Machine learning predicts which patients benefit from prostate mpMRI

2018 02 Apr

Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is a novel imaging tool that is increasingly used for prostate cancer detection. Key obstacles to routine use of prostate MRI include quality control, cost and access. To optimise resource utilisation and reduce unnecessary costs, a new machine learning model has been developed for identifying which patients could benefit... Read more
