In this study the use of 1H MRSI for the detection of lactate in the prostate was evaluated with the use of a semi-LASER sequence. No convincing lactate signal was detected in patients with highly aggressive prostate cancer. The minimal detectable lactate level was determined and estimated to be around 3 mM.
