White Plains, NY-ProStream with ETP+ is a new prostate MRIproduct from CAD Sciences that delivers simultaneous high temporaland high spatial resolution of the prostate in dynamiccontrast-enriched series. The device uses a series of proprietarysoftware algorithms-not an endorectal coil-to calculatetissue permeability and extracellular volume fraction and creates ahybrid image series from acquired data, ensuring high spatialresolution and signal-to-noise. Imaging workflow is streamlinedbecause technicians do not need to position the endorectal coil,and the cost of disposable coils is eliminated.
