To investigate the impact of prostate computed diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) on image quality and tumour detection. Forty-nine patients underwent 3-T magnetic resonance imaging using a pelvic phased-array coil before prostatectomy, including DWI with b values of 50 and 1,000 s/mm2. Computed DW images with b value 1,500 s/mm2 were generated from the lower b-value images. Directly acquired b-1,500 DW images were obtained in 39 patients. Two radiologists independently assessed DWI for image… CONTINUE READING
