Multi-parametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) plays a critical role in the diagnosis, staging, and evaluation of treatment response in patients with prostate cancer. Radiologists, through an accurate and standardized interpretation of mpMRI, can clinically stage prostate cancer and help to risk stratify patients who may benefit from more invasive treatment or exclude patients who may be harmed by overtreatment. The purpose of this article is to describe key findings to accurately stage prostate cancer with mpMRI and to describe the contexts in which mpMRI is best applied.
