In this prospective single institution registered clinical trial we aimed to evaluate the role of rapid pre-biopsy prostate MRI consisting of T2-weighted imaging and DWI, no endorectal coil, no iv contrast. The primary end point was the diagnostic accuracy of the models incorporating clinical variables, PSA, and MRI findings. In total 175 patients were enrolled and 161 were included in final analyses. Rapid pre-biopsy prostate MRI was shown to be an accurate tool for the management of patients with a clinical suspicion of prostate cancer.
