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 leads to the development of better tools to detect clinically relevant disease and to help distinguish aggressive from indolent forms of the disease. 

Current projects involve the determination of the added value of targeted biopsies using MRI-US fusion technology, the contribution of a novel MR elastography method in the detection and characterization of prostate cancer, and the development of a clinical protocol for prostate imaging using a 7 Tesla MRI.
