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

Prostate mpMRI detects local recurrence after LDR brachytherapy

2018 23 Jan

Low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy is commonly used for the treatment of prostate cancer. Although most patients who receive LDR brachytherapy for prostate cancer will be cured of their disease, biochemical recurrence occurs in 3%–13% of men undergoing monotherapy. New research demonstrates the efficacy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging... Read more
