High-quality T2-weighted imaging is critical in the evaluation of the prostatic transition zone for cancer. We adapted an acquisition technique currently used mostly in musculoskeletal MRI termed T2 Shuffling (T2Sh) by incorporating outer volume suppression (OVS) and optimizing it for the prostate. Our retrospective review of 20 patients assessed T2Sh in the evaluation of the prostate. The overall image quality of T2Sh was comparable to that of 2D T2 FSE with water-fat separation and superior to that of 3D T2 FSE with OVS and water-fat separation.
