Diagnosing Prostate Cancer Using Artificial Intelligence

2021 25 Jan

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men. Patients are determined to have prostate cancer based on Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), a prostate-specific antigen used as an index for the screening of prostate cancer. However, diagnostic accuracy for prostate cancer is as low as 30%. That is why a large number of patients have to undergo... Read more

RSNA 2019: Novel MRI-Guided Ultrasound Treatment Destroys Prostate Cancer

2019 02 Dec

  Good news for men with prostate problems including prostate cancer and benign prostate enlargement.      A new minimally invasive method, the MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (TULSA), has been shown to be effective in treating prostate cancer with minimal side effects, according to a new study presented at the annual meeting...

RSNA 2019: PSMA-based PET Radiotracers Transforming Care in Prostate Cancer

2018 04 Jul

A large number of radiotracers are currently being evaluated for prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET, which is becoming a central tool in the staging of prostate cancer, according to a review published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. Staging in various clinical contexts of prostate cancer, such as the preoperative setting... Read more

Biparametric MRI improves prostate cancer detection

2018 12 Jun

In a single-centre cohort study of 1,020 men who underwent both biparametric targeted and standard transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsies, low-suspicion biparametric magnetic resonance imaging (bpMRI) had a high negative predictive value (97%) in ruling out significant prostate cancer on confirmatory biopsies. The findings are published online... Read more

Hitachi Medical Systems Europe wins the contract to supply 6 ultrasound systems in the UK

2018 05 Jun

The new RAPID (Rapid Assessment Prostate Imaging and Diagnosis) programme accelerates the pathway which could lead to a ‘one-stop shop’ for men with prostate cancer by providing a multi-parametric MRI together with ultrasound imaging and biopsy on the same day. This will reduce unnecessary biopsies and provide accurate targeting whilst reducing the... Read more

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,... 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  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 and... Read more
