To review the study indications and patient preparation prior to the test. To learn the MRI sequences required for the testand lesion classification criterion following the PI-RADS v2 system. To adopt a systematic approach for the multiparametric prostate resonance (mpMRI) analysis to build a solid report.
Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent malignant neoplasms worldwide,
incidence being higher in older patients 2 .
It represents the second leading cause of death.
In underdeveloped countries,
most of the tumours are diagnosed in advanced stages,
moment in which therapy success is low 2 . Magnetic resonance is a non invasive imaging method for evaluating the prostate gland and surrounding structures.
Amultiparametric protocol (mpMRI) allows better detection of clinically significant...
Findings and procedure details
A review of prostate glandmpMRIsperformed in our institution (CT Scanner) from January 2015 to may 2017 was conducted,
selecting a few representative patients to present a case-based PI-RADS review.
International articles and the PI-RADS v2 guidelines were consulted. PI-RADS v2 1 5-point scale based classification. A 39 sections anatomical map should be used for lesion localization. The mpMRI assessment category indicates the probability of correlation to clinically significant prostate gland...
Prostate gland cancer is the second most common neoplasm in the world. Nowadays,
mpMRI has become the method of choice for detecting and staging prostatic cancer,
as it offers high resolution imaging and allows the evaluation of locoregional extension,
lymph node affection and detection of bone metastasis. mpMR is conformed by T2WI,
DWI and dynamic T1WI acquisitions.
T2WI gain greater importance in transitional zone lesions whilst DWI/ADC evaluation in peripheral zone pathology. The goal of...
