We prospectively assess the feasibility of using DW-MRI data to train an artificial neural network which distinguishes between prostate cancer lesions with high (≥7) and with low (=6) Gleason scores in 84 patients. The accuracy of the artificial neural network is compared with the accuracy of classification based on apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values.
