The present study aimed to explore the value of amide proton transfer-weighted (APTw) imaging combined with diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) in the differential diagnosis between benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatic cancer. The results showed that the combined technique had a good diagnostic effect. When APT value was combined with 3 DKI parameters (FA, MK, Ka), the diagnostic efficacy significantly enhanced (AUC: 0.872; sensitivity: 76.5%; specificity: 90.9%).
