Prostate Cancer

The program in prostate cancer research is a multidisciplinary effort that includes the Departments of Radiology, Pathology, Urology, and Radiation Oncology, as well as the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

The mission of this program is to promote innovative, high-impact, translational research that improves clinical outcomes through better tools to detect clinically relevant disease and distinction of aggressive versus indolent forms of the disease. 

Current projects involve the role of imaging-pathology reconciliation, the optimal biopsy strategy in men with abnormal multiparametric MRI, refining structured MRI reporting for detection and staging, and the validation of quantitative markers of disease aggressiveness.
