Endorectal 3D T2-weighted 1mm-slice thickness MRI for prostate cancer staging at 1.5Tesla: Should we reconsider the indirects signs of extracapsular extension according to the D’Amico tumor risk criteria?
European Journal of Radiology, 03/23/2012
Cornud F et al. – 3D data sets acquired with the SPACE sequence provides a high accuracy for local staging of prostate cancer. The use of indirect signs of extracapsular extension (ECE) may be recommended in low D’Amico risk tumors to optimise patient selection for active surveillance or focal therapy.
