Patients will undergo eMRI/MRSI examination. Upon arrival at the MRI suite, patients will be asked to complete a standard MRI screening form. Patients will be scanned in the supine position.
Patients will undergo eMRI/MRSI examination. All subjects will be asked to administer a Fleet enema on the day of the study in order to reduce the potential for fecal residue to interfere with imaging acquisition and quality. Upon arrival at the MRI suite, patients will be asked to complete a standard MRI screening form. Patients will be scanned in the supine position. The entire eMRI/MRSI study will be performed within 55-60 minutes.
- In a population of patients designated as clinically indolent by NCCN guidelines, we will evaluate the ability of eMRI/MRSI to predict pathologically indolent cancer. eMRI/MRSI findings will be compared with step-section pathology. [ Time Frame: October 2010 ]
- In the patients who are identified as harboring indolent prostate cancer by both clinical guidelines and eMRI/MRSI, clinical progression of disease will be evaluated in a cohort of patients receiving deferred therapy. [ Time Frame: October 2010 ]
- We will explore whether eMRI/MRSI markers of progression correlate with clinical markers of progression. [ Time Frame: October 2010 ]Patients undergoing deferred treatment will undergo followup eMRI/MRSI exams before surveillance biopsies, beginning approximately 12-18 months after confirmatory biopsy.
