Model supported virtual environment for prostate cancer pattern analysis


Other Article

A phased multidisciplinary research work was conducted to develop a master model supported image guidance in prostate biopsy, where a three-dimensional (3D) spatial probability maps of the location of high grade cancer will be constructed based on more than 250 digitally imaged surgical specimens. Preliminary results show that use of the master model allows correct understanding of prostate cancer distribution patterns and rational optimization of prostate biopsy and radiation therapy strategies.
