Multiparameter Prostate MRI

What does it consist of?

The multiparametric study of the prostate that consists of obtaining an anatomical image (differentiating between benign and malignant pathology), a metabolic image (citrate and choline concentration), a diffusion image (tumor aggressiveness) and a dynamic study with contrast (grade of vascularization of the tumor).


To carry out the test, you must remain stretched out on your back with your head resting on a cushion and a radiologist will administer contrast to mark the area to be studied. Next, the stretcher will move until the urogenital area is in the center of the resonance equipment. The test can last from 20 to 45 minutes. During this time, you will have to remain as calm as possible, since the taking of images is not continuous, but different image planes are made. Once finished you can continue with your daily life as normal.
