Abstract

Copyright © 2015, Kaohsiung Medical University. Published by Elsevier Taiwan LLC. All rights reserved.This article is primarily based on the utility and validity of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis and staging of prostate gland tumors. Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging is an emerging, useful approach for evaluating and detecting prostate cancers. It also aids in the management of a tumor and improve the care and follow-up of patients.
