Abstract

MRI of the prostate was available in at least 67 of 95 German postal regions (71%) in 2011. MRI of the prostate was most often performed at 1.5 T without an endorectal coil in Germany in 2011. At least two thirds of MRI-examinations of the prostate included both T2WI and at least one functional MR test (mostly DWI, less frequently MRS or DCE) in Germany in 2011. Structured reporting including graphic elements was offered by less than 20% of participating radiological institutions. Feedback to radiologists from referring physicians on subsequent test results in patients with MRI of the prostate most frequently came only upon special request by the radiologist.
