Abbreviated MR Protocols in Prostate MRI


Hötker, Andreas M; Vargas, Hebert Alberto; Donati, Olivio F (2022). Abbreviated MR Protocols in Prostate MRI. Life, 12:552.

Abstract

Prostate MRI is an integral part of the clinical work-up in biopsy-naïve patients with suspected prostate cancer, and its use has been increasing steadily over the last years. To further its general availability and the number of men benefitting from it and to reduce the costs associated with MR, several approaches have been developed to shorten examination times, e.g., by focusing on sequences that provide the most useful information, employing new technological achievements, or improving the workflow in the MR suite. This review highlights these approaches; discusses their implications, advantages, and disadvantages; and serves as a starting point whenever an abbreviated prostate MRI protocol is being considered for implementation in clinical routine.
