Diagnostic models for classifying prostate cancer within the transition zone based on multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) have been proposed to improve radiologist’s performance. Such diagnostic models are trained on mp-MRI data acquired at 1.5T or 3T MRI scanners, but to the best of our knowledge no-one has yet examined whether these magnet specific models are interchangeable. This work applied a previously published diagnostic model trained on mp-MRI data acquired at a 1.5T scanner, on an independent cohort of patients with mp-MRI data acquired at a 3T and found that the performance of the model doesn’t drop significantly.
