There are conflicting reports on the use of endorectal coil in the detection of prostate cancer at 3T due to increased patient discomfort and susceptibility artifacts. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility of Hybrid Multidimensional MRI (HM-MRI) without an endorectal coil (using pelvic phased-array coil only) in the detection of prostate cancer (PCa) and to calculate fractional volumes of prostatic tissue composition, non-invasively. A non-endorectal coil HM-MRI is feasible. We obtained a significant difference in epithelium volume between normal and PCa (p = 0.02), however stromal and luminal volume did not reach a significance level.
