It is one of radiographic exams, a type of X-ray tomography. It provides tomographic images (cross-sections) of examined inner organs. The images are available as cross-sections (2D) or as a spatial image (3D).
In prostate cancer diagnostics, computed tomography is used only for evaluation of lymph nodes in Patients with strict contraindications to magnetic resonance. Unfortunately, the scan does not ensure reliable evaluation of local prostate cancer progression. It can be used to find metastases to bones and soft tissues.
Magnetic resonance is a non-invasive method for imaging soft tissues using magnetic properties of hydrogen nuclei, present in various forms and at various levels in the whole body. Scientific research on magnetic resonance imagining was initiated over 40 years ago. This method shows lesions in soft tissues, and is particularly useful for prostate cancer. This scan is used for finding Continue Reading
Diagnosis is this stage of any treatment that is of crucial importance for its successful outcome. Without well diagnosed condition and disease type, it is difficult to manage it successfully. Therefore, at HIFU CLINIC Prostate Cancer Treatment Centre we ensure all diagnostic procedures are accurate, complete and correct. One of them is whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI/wbMRI). This technique brings Continue Reading
The prostate cancer is usually a cancer characterised by a relatively mild course - it develops very slowly, and metastases or infiltrates surrounding tissues relatively late. Therefore, regular monitoring of the PSA factor and healthy lifestyle are of crucial importance. Unfortunately, in Poland this cancer is still diagnosed at advanced stages, with much worse prognoses. Am I in a Continue Reading
