abstract

  • MRSI was associated with post-radical prostatectomy treatment failure in models adjusted for the number of positive biopsy cores and clinical risk score. This is the first report that in radical prostatectomy patients MRSI has an association with treatment failure independent of the number of positive biopsy cores. MRSI may help the clinician determine whether patients with high risk disease who undergo RP are candidates for specialized additional treatment.
