): 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.
