Only book in English to show color-coded DCE-MRI scans of prostate cancer and to correlate these imaging findings with tumor grading
Clearly illustrates how MRI can contribute to the early detection of prostate cancer
Includes case studies showing coming imaging findings and pitfalls in the management of prostate cancer
An invaluable teaching tool that uses color images to review standard MRI sequences
MRI Atlas of Prostate Cancer analyses high-resolution MRI scanning and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI. This combination improves the diagnosis and staging of prostate cancer and may replace PSA testing and digital rectal examination within the next decade. The book commences with chapters on normal anatomy, anatomic variations, benign disease and intraprostatic tumors. The subsequent chapters on MRI of extracapsular disease create a useful atlas of pathologic anatomy. This is the first text of its kind to show color-coded DCE-MRI scans of prostate cancer and to correlate these imaging findings with tumor grading. The chapters on the post-treatment prostate clearly display the increasing incidence of post-therapy recurrences and note alternative treatment options. A further chapter containing a number of case studies familiarizes the reader with the most common findings as well as the pitfalls that oncologists face in the management of prostate cancer. This book is intended for internists, radiologists, radiotherapists, oncologists, urologists, family practitioners, and general surgeons. Ultrasound, MRI, and radiotherapy technicians will find it extremely useful as a reference guide.
