Moving to higher magnetic field strength (> 3 T) may have clinical advantages because of an intrinsic increase of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), while heterogeneity in the transmit radiofrequency (RF) field or B1 can cause signal voids throughout images. This study aimed to evaluate the development of prostate MRI at 5T by providing assessment of image quality on clinical sequences, including T1W, T2W and DWI images. According to current results about image quality, present of artifacts, visibility of anatomical structures of T2W images, and geometric distortion of DWI images, clinical prostate imaging is feasible at 5T MRI.
