MULTIPARAMETRIC MRI OF THE PROSTATE
Multiparametric MRI of the Prostate
The Multiparametric MRI of the prostate is a specialized study used for the diagnosis and screening of prostate cancer. This study is also used to help the urologist determine the course of treatment when there is already a diagnosis of prostate cancer. The management of prostate cancer has changed in recent years. As a general rule, aggressive cancers are treated with surgery and non-aggressive cancers can be opted for a more conservative medical management depending on the age of the patient and their risk factors. Multiparametric MRI helps the urologist decide together with the patient which route of treatment is most convenient for the patient. This study requires little preparation and lasts about 45 minutes.
