What conditions can a prostate MRI scan detect?


Prostate Cancer Detection

Prostate MRI exhibits a high degree of sensitivity in identifying potential cancerous abnormalities within the prostate gland, enabling the recognition of suspicious regions that may necessitate additional evaluation or biopsy.

Prostate Size

The scan can detect any non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate, which, although not indicative of cancer on its own, could lead to urinary symptoms.

Lesions or Anomalies

A lesion refers to an irregular region, mark, or growth that may indicate the presence of infection, inflammation, or potentially prostate cancer.

Pelvic Tissue Health

A prostate MRI can also assess the bladder, rectum, colon, seminal vesicles, kidneys, gallbladder, liver, and pelvic bone marrow for any irregularities or abnormalities.

What tests are used to diagnosis prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer can be diagnosed through a combination of tests and procedures. These may include:
