abstract

  • Clinical nomograms for the prediction of insignificant disease provide more information than any diagnostic test alone; furthermore, nomograms that incorporate MRI or MRI/magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging findings with clinical and biopsy data have been shown to improve the prediction of insignificant cancer. A greater level of certainty, however, is still needed to help segregate low-risk patients from intermediate and high-risk patients. Therefore, more research is needed on imaging of low-risk prostate cancer so that data-driven, evidence-based practice guidelines in oncology combining anatomical, metabolic and laboratory data can be designed.
