PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of prebiopsy T2-weighted imaging (T2WI), quantitative diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), and the combination of these magnetic resonance (MR) techniques (T2WI+DWI) in the detection and localization of peripheral zone prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS T2WI and DWI (b value = 800 s/mm2) with an endorectal coil at 1.5 T were performed prospectively in 43 consecutive male patients with suspicion of prostate cancer before a systematic 12… CONTINUE READING
