Conventional diagnosis of prostate cancer typically involves transrectal biopsy. This is not only a painful and invasive, but also a "blind" procedure, leaving up to 20% of all cases undetected.1 Prostate MRI utilizes high-channel surface coils, offering a non-invasive and highly accurate2 technique for the early detection of prostate cancer. Improved patient set-up and accelerated scans help to optimize process efficiency.
