Abstract

Prostate cancer is one of the most frequent malignant diseases in men. Despite constant progress achieved in imaging procedures, prostate biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosing prostate cancer. For the assessment of lymph node status, only staging lymphadenectomy provides valid information. The aim of this work is to analyze the imaging procedures available in Germany and their value in primary and lymph node staging as well as biochemical recurrence.
