): Low mortality rate of indolent prostate cancer is
motivating patients to choose active survelliance.
However there are limited number of quantitative tools
to monitor the patients on active survelliance with
imaging. T2 contrast in prostate MRI has a potential to
monitor the patient on active surveliance. This is study
we have shown that Quantitative T2 histogram analysis
can be potentially utilized as an efficient, and quick
visual method of determining status of active
surveillance with high negative predictive value for
low-risk prostate cancer patients.
