ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the features and capabilities of prostate magnetic resonance (MR), as well as its contraindications. It notes that the combination of high-resolution T2- weighted imaging, diffusion-weighted imaging, MR spectroscopy, and dynamic contrast-enhanced T1-weighted imaging increases the sensitivity and specificity of prostate examination. It stresses that prostate MR can be used for evaluation of patients with biopsy-proven or suspected prostate cancer.
