The purpose of this research is to explore the clinical performance of T2-weighted imaging with deep learning reconstruction (DL-T2WI) for prostate imaging. We compared DL-T2WI and conventional T2WI using TSE (C-T2WI) in terms of image quality, ghosting and tumor conspicuity. The results showed that compared with C-T2WI, DL-T2WI has comparable image quality, ghosting, and tumor conspicuity. The acquisition time of the complete examination using DL-T2WI is 9 minutes shorter than C-T2WI per patient, which suggests that DL-T2WI could replace C-T2WI in clinical settings, with a significantly shorter examination time.
