Patients with newly diagnosed locally or regionally advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
Procedure: MRI and PET scanning procedures
a CT scan, MRI, and C-11 Acetate PET scan. All these scans will be done as an outpatient. After you finish these scans, your doctor will schedule you for surgery to remove your bladder and lymph nodes.
- Evaluate the logistical and technical parameters that are needed to use 11C acetate-PET, and MRI for the preoperative detection of nodal metastases in patients with invasive bladder cancer. [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ]
- Evaluate the logistical and technical parameters needed to use contemporary pelvic MRI for preop primary tumor staging in pts with invasive disease (>T2) through detailed comparison of MRI imaging and pathologic findings following radical cystectomy. [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ]
