A more effective imaging method for prostate cancer

Prostate cancer can spread beyond the prostate gland and become an extraprostatic extension (EPE). Currently, contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to detect and diagnose prostate cancer. This technique involves injecting patients with a contrast agent to identify where… Read more →
