The cost has been high because of the tools of the trade - an endorectal
MRI antenna (one that inserts in the rectum) takes time to sterilize, prepare the patient (convince him to allow it
Impact of multiparametric endorectal
coil prostate magnetic resonance imaging on disease reclassification among active surveillance candidates: A prospective cohort study.
At Siemens, in addition to the works-in-progress MAGNETOM Amira, there was a strong MR focus on prostate imaging with the 510(k)-pending SEEit MR application, which enables performance of a noninvasive prostate MR exam without an endorectal
Abdominal ultrasound is able to detect macrometastatic lesions in the liver, while endorectal
ultrasound provides excellent images of the rectal wall.
8221; The three-part series will cover these topics: “Understanding Endorectal
Cancer & Treatment Options,” “Understanding Melanoma & Treatment Options,” and “Gynecological Cancers & Treatment Options.
67) An endorectal
MRI and MR spectroscopy (MRS) was done at UCSF.
ultrasound staged the lesion uT2N1; American Joint Committee on Cancer staging was IIIA (T2 N1 M0).
Two promising techniques are power color Doppler TRUSP (transrectal ultrasound of the prostate) and endorectal
MR imaging and MR spectroscopic imaging for detection.
MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) system in endorectal
prostate treatments and to assess the safety and preliminary effectiveness of the treatment.
When there are positive endoscopic findings, we prefer endorectal
ultrasonography (ERUS) over transvaginal ultrasound to further evaluate rectal wall involvement of endometriosis.
Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute reports some new treatments undergoing clinical trials, including: biologic therapy (taking substances from the patient's immune system to fight the cancer); high-intensity-focused ultrasound (applied through an endorectal
probe); and proton beam radiation therapy (which targets the tumors with streams of protons).
