Abstract

Multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) has an increasingly important role in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Due to the large amount of data and variations in mp-MRI, tumor detection can be affected by multiple factors, such as the observer's clinical experience, image quality, and appearance of the lesions. In order to improve the quantitative assessment of the disease and reduce the reporting time, various computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems have been designed to help radiologists identify lesions. This manuscript presents an overview of the literature regarding prostate CAD using mp-MRI, while focusing on the studies of the most recent five years. Current prostate CAD technologies and their utilization are discussed in this review.
