Ideally there should be two further sequences, most commonly these are diffusion weighted sequences (DWI with ADC maps) and dynamic contrast enhanced series. Some centers use spectroscopy as well. Focused thin slice axial, coronal and sagittal T2, diffusion weighted and dynamic contrast enhanced studies focused on the prostate gland are imperative for maximal diagnostic accuracy. Tumours are depicted as low T2 signal foci, and as areas of increased cellularity (high signal intensity on the DWI series) or restricted diffusion (low signal intensity on the ADC maps) and augmented vascularity (with early avid vascular blush and rapid washout).
