The Prostate Imaging - Reporting and Data System Version 2 (PI-RADS™ v2) is the product of an international collaboration of the American College of Radiology (ACR), European Society of Uroradiology (ESUR), and AdMetech Foundation. It is designed to promote global standardization and diminish variation in the acquisition, interpretation, and reporting of(More)
PURPOSE We compared the accuracy of visual targeted biopsies vs computerized transrectal ultrasound-magnetic resonance imaging registration using a rigid (Esaote®, nondeformable) or elastic (Koelis®, deformable) approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 391 consecutive patients with suspected localized prostate cancer were prospectively included in(More)
BACKGROUND Wide variations in acquisition protocols and the lack of robust diagnostic criteria make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detection of prostate cancer (PCa) one of the most challenging fields in radiology and urology. OBJECTIVE To validate the recently proposed European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) scoring system for multiparametric(More)
OBJECTIVE This article is a primer on the technical aspects of performing a high-quality dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) examination of the prostate gland. CONCLUSION DCE-MRI is emerging as a useful clinical technique as part of a multi-parametric approach for evaluating the extent of primary and recurrent prostate cancer. Performing a(More)

OBJECTIVE • To evaluate the combination of multiple magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, including T2-weighted imaging (T2W), dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging (DCE) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), for the detection and localization of prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS • In all, 57 patients underwent endorectal MRI at 1.5 T before(More)
Varicocele can be very easily diagnosed by physical examination and subsequently treated when it is painful or associated with testicular hypotrophy. However, palpability of the spermatic vein and reflux in low grade or even questionable varicoceles can be difficult to assess without imaging modalities. This can be a common problem for all physicians(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of a 3D-endorectal 1mm-thick slices MRI acquisition for local staging of low, intermediate and high D'Amico risk prostate cancer (PCa). MATERIALS AND METHODS 178 consecutive patients underwent a multiparametric MRI protocol prior to radical prostatectomy (RP). T2W images were acquired with the 3D sampling perfection with(More)
PURPOSE Magnetic resonance imaging-transrectal ultrasound fusion targeted prostate biopsies were suggested to detect significant cancer with more accuracy than systematic biopsies. In this study we evaluate the pathological characteristics of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging detected and undetected tumor foci on radical prostatectomy specimens. (More)
The authors report the diffusion and contrast-enhanced MRI appearance of five cases of granulomatous prostatitis (GP), non-specific (two cases) and infectious post-Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) therapy (three cases, with a tubercular abscess in two of them). All patients had raising PSA levels and abnormal DRE. History of BCG therapy or acute prostatitis(More)
