The purpose of our study is to assess the usefulness of subtracted images from 4-1 min in DCE MR imaging for the prostate cancer diagnosis. Subtracted images from 4-1 min were assessed for the visual washout scores of prostate cancer and normal PZ, and compared with the time-contrast media curve patterns in each patient. A subtraction image set of DCE MRI 4-1 min mirrored time - concentration curve patterns of DCE MR imaging in prostate cancer and normal PZ. This subtraction image set can be a more simple method to display the DCE characteristics without any additional post-processing.
