[MRI of the prostate].

New clinical and technological advances in the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and targeted image-guided biopsy techniques have significantly improved the detection, localization and staging as well as active surveillance of prostate cancer in recent years. Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is currently the main imaging technique for the detection, characterization and diagnostics of metastasizing prostate cancer and is of high diagnostic importance for local staging within the framework of the detection of prostate cancer.
