Prostate peripheral zone T2 hypointensity

Last revised by Dr Jeremy Jones on 20 Sep 2021

Prostate peripheral zone T2 hypointensity is a common finding in pelvic MRIs that needs to be evaluated. A prostate MRI is usually performed with a multiparametric technique (mpMRI) to differentiate prostate cancer from more benign pathologies. mpMRI includes T2 weighted images, dynamic contrast study and DWI. T1 weighted images are used to exclude postbiopsy hemorrhage.
