In this meta analysis, the authors point out the potential weaknesses of “anatomical MRI” for evaluating the response to treatment. Conversely, the found that the added value of spectroscopy was high.
This is a practical example of how a machine can learn reading prostatic MR, extracting radiomics and improving the PI-RADS classifciation.
