Abstract

PURPOSE Accurate staging modalities to diagnose lymph node involvement in patients with prostate cancer (PCa) are lacking. We wanted to prospectively assess sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value of (11)C-choline positron emission tomography (PET)-computed tomography (CT) and diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for nodal staging in patients with PCa at high risk for lymph node involvement. MATERIAL AND METHODS In total, 75 patients with a risk≥10% but
