abstract

  • Index lesion volume on magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging and high grade magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging voxels correlate with time to biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy even when adjusted for clinical data. Results suggest the preoperative predictive usefulness of endorectal magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging in patients considering radical prostatectomy.
