Multi-parametric whole body MRI in prostate cancer patient

Case Study
Punwani, Shonit, M.D., Ph.D. UCL • United Kingdom

Patient history

Bone scan and multi-parametric MRI concordant lesions were found in a patient with known prostate cancer. The MRI exam was performed at College London Hospital. 

MR examination

A multi-parametric MRI exam was performed using Ingenia 3.0T wiht the dS Torso coil solution.

Two lesions are demonstrated on the bone scan at T12 and T7 vertebral body levels. The coronal mDIXON in-phase image demonstrates both lesions as foci of low T1 signal. Coronal reformat of an axial diffusion b1000 scan (inverted contrast) demonstrates restricted diffusion within the T12 lesion. The axial T2-weighted image at the T12 level confirms low T2 signal.


The lesions seen in the bone scan are also demonstrated with multi-parametric MRI.

Clinical impact of multi-parametric prostate imaging

Being able to demonstrate lesions with MRI allows to use a multiparametric approach for whole body oncology in a reasonable amount of time.
