Translated title of the contribution: New imaging techniques in the diagnosis of prostate cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

In this article imaging techniques are discussed in the diagnosis of prostate cancer and future developments are highlighted. The nowadays preferred new imaging techniques (prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET) and whole body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)) detect metastases that would have remained unnoticed with traditional techniques (bone scan and computed tomography (CT)). This leads to practical dilemma’s in clinical practice, because scientific insights so far are based on the results of studies using old imaging techniques for staging. This dilemma is not solved until the diagnostic accuracy of the new imaging techniques and the consequences of the early detection of metastases are clear.
