While 3T offers SNR benefits for prostate imaging, patients with hip prostheses are problematic due to susceptibility artifacts and implant heating concerns. These issues are better managed at 1.5T but 1.5T lacks the SNR versus 3T. Deep learning reconstruction (DLR) may provide the SNR boost to clear this hurdle. Feasibility of 1.5T prostate MRI with DLR in patients with hip prosthesis is explored in up to 20 subjects focusing on two key contrasts in the PI-RADS guideline: T2Wand DWI. Preliminary results suggest that 1.5T with DLR might be the preferred option for patients with hip implants.
