Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer for men, and it has high leading cause of cancer death among men. The term radiomics has attracted increased attention in recent years, and it is the process of the conversion of medical images into high-dimensional, mineable data via high-throughput extraction of quantitative features, followed by subsequent data analysis for decision support.The aim of this study was to evaluate radiomics as a tool to distinguish PCa from BPH based on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequence without subjective factors.
