Testicular germ cell tumors, particularly nonseminomatous germ cell tumors (NSGCT), comprise the most common solid malignancy in male children and younger adults. While these patients experience excellent survival outcomes, few studies have characterized their survival by age.
To understand perspectives on RMB, a survey was distributed to urologists in the Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC) and Pennsylvania Urologic Regional Collaborative (PURC).
The current utility of MRI-fusion targeted biopsy as either an adjunct to or replacement for systematic template biopsy for the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer is disputed. The purpose of this study is to assess the current effectiveness of MRI-targeted versus systematic template prostate biopsies at two institutions and to consider possible underlying factors […]
To determine whether marital status combined with race serve as prognostic factors for survival in localized prostate cancer. Patients with localized prostate cancer were retrospectively extracted from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database.
Signal intensity normalization is necessary to reduce heterogeneity in T2-weighted (T2W) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for quantitative analysis of multicenter data. AutoRef is an automated dual-reference tissue normalization method that normalizes transversal prostate T2W MRI by creating a pseudo-T2 map.
Cribriform growth pattern is well-established as an adverse pathologic feature in prostate cancer. The literature suggests "large" cribriform glands associate with aggressive behavior; however, published studies use varying definitions for "large".
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided cognitive or image fusion biopsy is performed to target a prostate imaging reporting and data system (PI-RADS) 3-5 lesion. Biopsy Gleason score (GS) is frequently underestimated compared to prostatectomy GS.
Prostate cancer has been shown to be susceptible to significant stigmatisation, because to a large extent it is concealable, it has potentially embarrassing sexual symptoms and has significant impact on the psychosocial functioning.
To develop and validate prognostic nomograms for predicting overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) in patients with penile cancer (PC). Based on the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Result (SEER) database, patients diagnosed with PC from 2010 to 2015 were enrolled in this study.
Immuno-positron emission tomography (immunoPET) combines the specificity of an antibody with the sensitivity of PET to image dysregulated pathways in cancer. This study examines the performance of immunoPET using the radioimmunoconjugate [89Zr]Zr-DFO-Panitumumab to detect epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression in an orthotopic model of bladder cancer (BCa).
