Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To demonstrate that multi-voxel MR spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging can accurately diagnose prostate cancer and benign diseases, also to provide an accurate disease extent. [ Time Frame: at completion of the study ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: June 2007
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: magnetic resonance imaging
    MR contrast agent (0.1 mmol/kg)

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. A male older than 21 years of age and under age of 80,

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Unwilling to give informed consent,
  2. Have implanted prosthetic heart valves, pacemaker, neuro-stimulation devices, surgical clips (hemostatic clips) or other metallic implants,
  3. Have engaged in occupations or activities which may cause accidental lodging of ferromagnetic materials, or have imbedded metal fragments from military activities,
