Multiparametric magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the prostate is gaining acceptance in the management of prostate cancer. Emerging indications of prostate MR imaging may expand its use in the work-up of localized prostate cancer. Improvements in the standardization of prostate MR imaging techniques and reporting are needed for further establishment of the emerging roles of prostate MR imaging. This article describes the prostate MR imaging techniques and provides an approach for interpretation of prostate MR imaging studies. Established and emerging indications for prostate MR imaging are also reviewed.
