Prostate Imaging Research

The University of Chicago Medicine has a multidisciplinary research team that continuously works to develop new imaging and image-guided technologies to advance the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. The team is composed of radiologists, urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, medical physicists and molecular biologists.

Our top research goals are finding the best approaches to:

  • Non-invasive and accurate diagnosis of aggressive prostate cancer using MR (magnetic resonance) imaging
  • Eradication of localized prostate cancer with minimal complications using minimally invasive treatment methods.

The University of Chicago Medicine's prostate MR research team has developed new MR sequences and pilot computer-aided detection (CAD) software for prostate MRI, and has tested MR-guided therapy methods, such as laser and focused ultrasound ablation, in clinical and pre-clinical studies.
