Can Whole-body Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Diffusion-weighted Imaging Replace Tc 99m Bone Scanning and Computed Tomography for Single-step Detection of Metastases in Patients with High-risk Prostate Cancer Full Text
European Urology, 06/20/2012
Lecouvet FE et al. – Whole–body magnetic resonance imaging (WBMRI) outperforms bone scintigraphy/targeted x–rays in detecting bone metastases and performs as well as computed tomography for enlarged lymph node evaluation. WBMRI can replace the current multimodality metastatic work–up for the concurrent evaluation of bones and lymph nodes in high–risk prostate cancer patients.
