Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the incremental effect of perfusion imaging on biopsy target identification at endorectal multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Materials and methods: We retrospectively 52 patients who underwent endorectal multiparametric prostate MRI for suspected or untreated prostate cancer. Two readers independently identified biopsy targets without and with perfusion images. Results: Reader 1 identified 36 targets without and 39 targets with perfusion imaging (P > .05). The corresponding numbers for reader 2 were 38 and 38, respectively (P = .5). Conclusion: Perfusion imaging does not significantly increase the number of biopsy targets identified at endorectal multiparametric prostate MRI.
