Core Tip Accurate nodal staging at time of prostate cancer diagnosis is crucial in determining a treatment plan for the patient. This review article highlights the newest imaging techniques that have been and are being developed for imaging of lymph nodes in the initial staging of prostate cancer. Magnetic resonance lymphography utilizing ultra-small super paramagnetic iron oxide has shown to detect metastatic disease in normal sized lymph nodes. Considerable efforts are being made in molecular imaging to develop effective positron emission tomography radiotracers that may be combined with computed tomography or magnetic resonance to detect prostate metastasis as well as potential therapeutic applications.
