A multiparametric MRI examination of the prostate typically generates a large number of individual images (over 500) and MR spectra (several hundreds). Analysis and review of these data can be a laborious and time-consuming procedure for the radiologist. This work describes and evaluate a non-commercial software solution for the analysis and simultaneous display of data from T2-weighted, diffusion-weighted, dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) and chemical shift imaging (CSI). Besides an automated calculation of semiquantitative DCE parameter maps, the tool also allows for a transparent overlay of selected low-error metabolite ratios from CSI data analyzed with a well-established spectroscopy software (LCModel).
