This study evaluated different 2D-ROI methods to measure ADC of prostate lesions on prostate MR. The optimal method for measuring ADC values of suspected lesion for differentiating csPCa and non-csPCa on prostate MRI is 2D-ROI method placed on the lowest ADC area using 6-8 mm2 / 8-9 pixel-size ROI (AUC, peripheral zone lesions: 0.740-0.743 / 0.742-0.743, transition zone lesions: 0.709-0.710 / 0.711-0.713). Use of a standardized ROI size improves interobsever variability.
