I started looking for the formula JohnT mentioned in a post and finally located Strum's volume calculator using the internet way back machine since PCRI doesn't currently have it linked. FWIW, here's where I fall according to the calculator:


Patient name D 3
Enter Date------------------- > 12/8/2009 Enter Gleason Score Right lobe ----> 3 Tumor Volume (TV) at RP
Enter Total PSA ----------- > 8.7 Enter cores positive Right lobe ----> 4 and Cure Post RP after Stamey et al.
Enter Trusp Volume----- > 32 Enter Gleason Score Left lobe ----- > 3 TV at RP # pts. # cured % cured
Volume fraction of cancer -> 0.02 Enter cores positive Left lobe ---- > 0 <.5 cc’s 17 16 94
PC volume calculated------- > 0.49 .5-2 cc 91 73 80
PSA benign ------------------ > 2.112 GS R x # cores positive on right --- > 12 2.0-6.0 129 65 50
PSA PC specific -----------> 6.588 GS L x # cores positive on left -- --- > 0 6.1-12 49 11 22
Organ Confined PC probabilty: 90% Total of above 2 items ---------------- > 12 >12 32 2 6
Predicted 20 mo. Post-RT freedom Total # of positive cores ------------ > 4 Totals 318 167
from PSA Failure Weighted G score ------ > 3
by calculated volume --------------- > 92% Weighted G grade ------ > 1.50
by volume fraction ------------------ > 88% PSA Leak into serum --- > 13.33
Fill in name, date and the yellow cells only. All other values will be calculated for you.
Formulas based on the following four papers:
