A total of 21% of patients underwent bone scans in the pre-intervention group compared with18% in the post-intervention group (P = 0.84). In intermediate-risk patients, the use of CT decreased from 89% to 34% (P < 0.001), whilst the use of bone scan decreased from 63% to 37% (P = 0.02). In high-risk patients, the appropriate use of imaging was maintained, with CT performed in 87% compared with 85% and bone scan in 87% compared with 65% (P = 0.07). Conclusion: Our results show that a focused, clinician-centred education programme can lead to improved guideline adherence at a regional level. The assessment of trends and application of such a programme at a state-based or national level could be further assessed in the future with the help of registry data. This will be particularly important in future with the advent of advanced imaging, such as prostate-specific membrane antigen positron-emission tomography.]]> Wed 12 May 2021 14:47:36 AEST ]]> Spinal multiparametric MRI and DEXA changes over time in men with prostate cancer treated with androgen deprivation therapy: a potential imaging biomarker of treatment toxicity https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:33054 5 % BMD loss after 1 year had triple the percentage increase in MRS FF at 6 months (61.1 % vs. 20.9 %, p = 0.19). Conclusions: Changes are observed on L-spine MRI after 6 months of ADT. Further investigation is warranted of MRS change as a potential predictive biomarker for later BMD loss.]]> Wed 04 Sep 2019 09:54:20 AEST ]]>
