Contrast-enhanced ultrasound for prostate cancer detection

2018 17 Apr

New research from Thomas Jefferson University suggests that contrast-enhanced subharmonic imaging (SHI) could be useful in detecting prostate cancers that are not identified by MRI. The findings will be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting, set for 22-27 April in Washington, DC.SHI is a new technique for imaging of microbubble ultrasound contrast... Read more

PSMA PET/CT for detecting prostate cancer

2018 14 Feb

German researchers have found a new marker for differentiating cancerous tissue from healthy tissue in prostate cancer patients. Based on their study, the maximum standardised uptake value (SUVmax) on Gallium-68 prostate specific membrane antigen (68Ga-PSMA) PET/CT scans correlates with PSMA-expression in primary prostate cancer. With this method, the... Read more

New report from Sectra shows where radiologists see the added value of machine learning

2017 09 Oct

 A new report from medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra(STO: SECT B) shows in what areas of the diagnostic process radiologists themselves see the added value of machine learning. The report clearly shows more opportunities than threats.  Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are set to disrupt the practice of radiology. How... Read more

MR Imaging Cost-effective in Prostate Cancer Detection

2017 23 May

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging–guided strategies for the detection of prostate cancer were cost-effective compared with the standard biopsy strategy, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology.The current standard for detecting prostate cancer is a systematic transrectal ultrasonography (US)-guided biopsy with the acquisition of 12–16...

Novel MRI Method Distinguishes Healthy Prostate Tissue from Cancer

2016 23 Aug

Radiologists from UT Southwestern Medical Center have used a novel MRI technique that detects low levels of zinc ion and can help distinguish healthy prostate tissue from cancer. The findings are published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.MRIs in general are unable to distinguish between zinc levels in healthy, malignant, and benign... Read more
