Abstract: Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common diseases in the world. PCa can primarily disseminate to the bone, causing bone metastases, which in turn can lead to death. It is important to diagnose bone metastases as soon as possible in order to treat the disease. Bone metastases are diagnosed commonly by bone scan imaging. However, interpretation of bone scan images is not always an easy task for physicians. One way of minimising the risk of misinterpretation is quantitative analysis of bone ... more
