Male urogenital disease is a common problem, and non-invasive methods for diagnosis and disease progression tracking are limited. This study was aimed at developing an MRI-based method to characterize urogenital tissue morphology, bladder-prostate interaction, and blood flow perfusion. These methods were tested in three patients with BPH and three healthy volunteers. Strong correlation between void fraction and prostate volume was found. Future work will be aimed at applying these methods to larger cohorts so that clinical utility may be further understood.
