Acquisition time of a routine prostate MRI can be up to 20-25 minutes leading to significant financial burden on healthcare systems as the number of prostate MRI continue to increase. We developed, validated and tested an open-source radiomics/texture tools for 5-minute biparametric prostate MRI (T2-weighed imaging and DWI obtained using 4 b-values (0, 900, 1100, 2000 s/mm2)) using whole mount prostatectomy sections of 157 men with prostate cancer, PCa, (244 PCa lesions). Best features were corner detectors with AUC (clinically insignificant vs insignificant prostate cancer) in the range of 0.82-0.89. Code and data are available at: and .
