The purpose of this article is to discuss the information that is important to note in imaging reports of patients with prostate cancer.

Accurate staging through imaging is an integral part of prostate cancer management. Ultrasound, CT, bone scanning, and MRI are used for prostate cancer patients to assess the primary tumor, lymph node status, and bone metastasis. Accurate reporting of images is crucial for effective cancer treatment.
