Prostate peripheral zone T2 hypointensity

Prostate peripheral zone T2 hypointensity is a common finding in pelvic MRIs that needs to be differentiated. A prostate directed MRI is usually performed using a multi-parametric technique to differentiate prostate cancer from more benign changes. This includes T2 weighted images, dynamic contrast study, DWI, and possibly MR spectroscopy. T1 weighted images can also be used to exclude post-biopsy haemorrhage.
