Prostate cancer (PCa) detection has been rising since the implementation of serum prostate specific antigen screening and greater utilization of ultrasound guided prostate biopsy. However, many of those detected are low grade, low volume tumors that are clinically insignificant. In this work we demonstrate the sensitivity of high resolution 3T endorectal coil MRI in detecting clinically relevant PCa, using whole mount histopathology and tumor by tumor mapping as the reference standard.
