Post biopsy prostate haemorrhage significantly alter the T1 and T2 MRI signal which makes it challenging to interpret these images. Moreover the temporal changes of T1 and T2 MRI signal characteristics is unclear. Prostatic post-biopsy ADC maps quantitative signal changes has not been widely investigated.In this prospective study, the longitudinal signal changes of prostate multi-parametric MRI is analysed.
