Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study was to investigate the MRI and MR spectroscopy features of mucinous adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

CONCLUSION:

MRI and MR spectroscopy do not appear to provide the ability to reliably detect the lakes of extracellular mucin seen in mucinous adenocarcinoma of the prostate.
