Imaging of Prostatic Anatomy in Patients with Known Prostate Cancer and Those at High-Risk using Magnetic Resonance Elastography


About this study

Many of the current imaging tests we have for prostate cancer are problematic in their ability to distinguish cancerous from non-cancerous prostate tissue. This study is being performed to develop better imaging techniques to better identify and characterize prostate cancer.
