Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) has been shown to improve detection, localization and characterization in patients with suspected prostate cancer (PCa). The Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PIRADS) aims to establish corresponding technical parameters and simplify reporting. While computer-aided evaluation (CAE) technology is not required for prostate mpMRI interpretation, the current PIRADS guideline (v2) also states that CAE may improve workflow, provide quantitative perfusion data, enhance discrimination performance for less experienced radiologists and also facilitate integration of MRI data for some biopsy systems. The goal of this work was to demonstrate relevant features and benefits of an investigational PC-based CAE tool.
