Abstract

This study describes a multimodality images based platform to drive photodynamic therapies of prostate cancer using WST 11 TOOKAD Soluble drug. The platform integrates a pre-treatment planning tool based on magnetic resonance imaging and a per-treatment guidance tool based on transrectal ultrasound images. Evaluation of the platform on clinical data showed that prediction of the therapy outcome was possible with an accuracy of 90 %.
