ABSTRACT Objective: To compare qualitatively and quantitatively, in terms of image quality, a new biexponential diffusion sequence protocol with the standard monoexponential diffusion protocol on multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging. Methods: This study had a prospective data collection and cross-sectional analysis. Between August and November 2017, a total of 70 patients who underwent multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging due to clinical suspicion of prostatic neoplasia were recruited. The images obtained were evaluated by two independent readers regarding subjective/qualitative criteria (six […]

A 34-year old male patient, victim of motorcycle accident at about 56 miles/hour, was brought into emergency care with a cervical collar. He was hemodynamically stable, with no respiratory or neurological impairment, complaining of diffuse moderate intensity abdominal pain during the physical examination. During secondary evaluation, abrasions were identified on the abdominal wall in the right flank area. Due to high energy trauma, he underwent a whole body computed tomography (CT) that showed an hematoma in the mesenteric fat planes […]

ABSTRACT Magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate is an imaging method that has shown increasing relevance in urological practice. Due to technological evolution of scanners and the introduction of functional sequences, it has enabled greater accuracy in detection and characterization of prostate tumors.

ABSTRACTObjective:To describe the imaging findings of prostatic tumors nonadenocarcinoma on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging.Methods:A total of 200 patients underwented multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate for screening for prostate cancer, from August 2013 to September 2014, followed by biopsy with ultrasound/magnetic resonance imaging fusion.Results:We found three pathologic proved cases of prostatic pure leiomyomas (0.02%) in our series and described the multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging features of these prostatic leiomyomas. The imaging findings had similar features to lesions with moderate […]
