Prostate MRI with PI-RADS v2.1: initial detection and active surveillance.

The role of prostate MRI in clinical practice has continued to broaden over time. Multiple iterations of PI-RADS reporting have aided in improving detection and reporting of prostate cancer. In addition, recent recommendations from the PI-RADS Steering Committee promote an MRI-first approach with an MRI-directed prostate cancer diagnostic pathway. It is imperative for radiologists to be knowledgeable and familiar with prostate MRI and PI-RADS recommendations, as there is an increasing demand for prostate imaging by clinicians and patients alike.
