Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common malignant cancers in man. A recently work derived the information of hypoxia from intravoxel-incoherent motion diffusion-weighted imaging (IVIM) and demonstrated strong correlation between IVIM derived hypoxia and immunohistological hypoxia marker. In our work, IVIM derived hypoxia demonstrated better discrimination ability for the risk of PCa than apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and pure tissue diffusion (Ds). It might further improve the risk stratification of PCa and can be used as a prognostic factor.
