Abstract

Prostate MRI has been a hot topic in recent years in large part due to the high incidence of prostate cancer worldwide. Advances in technology have allowed multiparametric MRI to improve lesion detection and characterization in prostate imaging. Additionally, prostate MRI has shown great promise in the detection of clinically significant cancer. In 2012, the European Society of Urogenital Radiology established clinical guidelines for multiparametric MRI of the prostate to facilitate a greater level of standardization and consistency, which became known as the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS). Subsequently, the American College of Radiology, European Society of Urogenital Radiology and the AdMeTech Foundation jointly created PI-RADS version 2. This article focuses on summarizing the key points of PI-RADS version 2.
