Elevated PSA after prostatectomy


Dynamic Contrast-Enhancement for Biochemical Failure

LEFT: Axial T2-weighted image: slight asymmetry at the vesicourethral anastomosis could be post-surgical change

Addition of radiation therapy was followed by decrease in PSA

Advantage: UCLA Prostate MRI

MRI is sensitive to recurrence in the radiation therapy field and surgical bed as well as lymph nodes and bones
