Abstract:

Our initial findings illustrate the potential of the stretched exponential model parameters to better characterize high-grade prostate cancer. Additional work is underway to establish the correspondence between the DDC and a-maps with histological sections of the entire prostate gland. Given the technical difficulty with comparison of radical prostatectomy histology with imaging, we have also introduced a method to evaluate the accuracy of our novel diffusion imaging with biopsy histology.
