The objectives of this study are to: 1) evaluate the feasibility of 3T MRSI of prostate in improving the spectral resolution, using a PFC-filled endorectal coil, 2) develop a systematic metabolic grading system for tumor detection by identifying the abnormal peak areas of Cho, Cr, Po, and Ci for the prostate carcinoma, specifically from PFC-filled endorectal 3T MRSI, and 3) evaluate the efficacy of the metabolic grading system in tumor detection.
The long-term goal of the study is to provide an early prognostic indicator and means of monitoring the biologic status of the prostate cancer during the course of the disease.

Experimental: 3T MRSI Prostate
3T Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging
Procedure: 3T Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging
Part 1 of Study = One MRSI exam with an air-filled endorectal coil (AIR-MRSI) and one with a PFC-filled endorectal coil (PFC-MRSI); Part 2 of Study = MRSI exam with PFC using an endorectal coil only.
- Comparison of linewidths collected from AIR MRSI and PFC-MSRI [ Time Frame: 2 MRSI studies should take about 60 minutes; study participation completed with prostatectomy to take place within 3 months of MRSI exams ]The outcome variable for comparing linewidths between the two modalities is paired differences of measurements taken from the same patients. A paired t-test is used to test for a 50% decrease in the mean linewidth as measured by PFC-MRSI versus AIR-MRSI.
