This book provides a concise guide to prostate cancer imaging. Beginning with normal MR anatomy, the book details the various components of a typical mpMRI protocol and discusses MR interpretation and reporting under PI-RADS version 2 guidelines. MR appearances of atypical locations of prostate cancer, common tumor mimics, MR-guided biopsy strategies, and the role of active surveillance are also covered.
Reading MRI of the Prostate aims to help urologists and radiologists understand the evaluation and interpretation of prostate MRIs.
