Improved Imaging for Prostate Cancer Could Lead to More Effective Treatment

Interdisciplinary project seeks to improve outcomes for high-risk prostate cancer patients The picture shows that time series signal is extracted from a series of ultrasound frames for classification. — Engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are working to improve imaging methods in order to make medicine more precise and personalized. This work will be a critical component of a new interdisciplinary research project funded with $1.4 million from the National Institutes of Health that seeks to improve radiation therapy for high-risk prostate cancer patients.[2]
