In this retrospective study, we aim to investigate the application value of quantitative relaxation time obtained from synthetic MRI in the diagnosis and assessment of aggressiveness of transition zone prostate cancer. It was concluded that quantitative relaxation T1 and T2 values of synthetic MRI are useful parameters for discriminate TZ PCa from BPH, and T1 value demonstrated the similar diagnostic performance as ADC value. Gleason staging could be preliminarily assessed by T2 value of SyMRI in patients who cannot be punctured.
