Images from a 73-year-old man with a PSA level of 8.4 ng/mL. a A focal hypointensity with a partially circumscribed margin is shown in the right posterior peripheral zone on axial T2-weighted MRI, with a T2WI score of 4. b DWI shows slightly increased signal intensity of the lesion with a score of 3. c DCE MRI reveals the lesion with an early and clear enhancement, which translates to a positive DCE score. The PI-RADS category of this lesion is 3 with the bpMRI protocol and 4 with the mpMRI protocol. The lesion was proven to be a clinically significant cancer with a Gleason Score = 4 + 3 by biopsy
