A Study to Assess Multiparametric MRI in Evaluating Cancer Stage and Helping Treatment Planning in Patients with Prostate Cancer

Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to assess how well multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works in evaluating cancer stage and helping treatment planning in patients with prostate cancer. Multiparametric MRI may be useful for evaluating the type of cancer in finding aggressive disease.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Recently diagnosed with prostate cancer for whom definitive surgical treatment is indicated.

Exclusion Criteria: 

  • Not suitable to undergo MRI or receive gadolinium-based contrast agent (severe, untreatable claustrophobia; MRI-incompatible metallic objects or implanted medical devices; renal failure; weight greater than allowable by scanner per institutional standard practice).
  • Prior surgical and/or non-surgical treatment for prostate cancer.
  • Prior hip replacement or other major pelvic surgery
