SBRT for Localized Prostate Cancer Study
A type of imaging called multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) has been approved to detect aggressive, high-grade, invasive prostate cancer. This is considered the standard care for prostate cancer. An MRI is a type of scan that uses magnets, radio waves, and a computer to produce images of body structures. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects, good and/or bad, of using mpMRI to guide high-dose radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:
- Have a diagnosis of prostate cancer within 1 year.
- Have no distant metastases or regional lymph node involvement.
- Have no use of finasteride within 30 days.
- Have no use of dutasteride within 90 days.
