This atlas provides a comprehensive, state of the art review of the use of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) for the imaging of prostate cancer, covering aspects from diagnosis and loco-regional staging through to the role of the technique after treatment and follow-up. The book contains a wealth of high-resolution images, many of them in color, and displays the anatomical-MRI-pathological correlation whenever appropriate. Readers will find a helpful overview on the current standardized method for reading and reporting on mpMRI, the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS), version 2. Dedicated chapters focus on differential diagnosis and imaging pitfalls, and the inclusion of helpful diagrams and algorithms will further assist in image interpretation, enabling readers to ease and improve their use of mpMRI. Edited and written by very experienced radiologists, pathologists, and urologists; the Atlas of Multiparametric Prostate MRI will serve as a unique source of clinically relevant information and an aid to disease management for radiologists, urologists, pathologists, radiotherapists, and oncologists.

"This book on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate uses excellent and abundant color illustrations and figures to present the fundamentals for developing a successful mpMRI prostate program. ... The book is specifically geared to radiologists or other experts interested in starting or improving their protocol for imaging the prostate. ... This is a must have for those developing or wishing to improve their prostate MRI program. It is mostly geared for those with an understanding of MR imaging." (James R. Mark, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2018)
