PI-RADS Assessment for T2W

Score Peripheral Zone (PZ)
1 Uniform hyperintense signal intensity (normal)
2 Linear or wedge-shaped hypointensity or diffuse mild hypointensity, usually indistinct margin
3

Heterogeneous signal intensity or non-circumscribed, rounded, moderate hypointensity

Includes others that do not qualify as 2, 4, or 5

4 Circumscribed, homogeneous moderate hypointense focus/mass confined to prostate and < 1.5 cm in greatest dimension
5 Same as 4 but ≥ 1.5 cm in greatest dimension or definite extraprostatic extension/invasive behavior

 

Score Transition Zone (TZ)
1 Homogeneous intermediate signal intensity (normal)
2 Circumscribed hypointense or heterogeneous encapsulated nodule(s) (BPH)
3

Heterogeneous signal intensity with obscured margins

Includes others that do not qualify as 2, 4, or 5

4 Lenticular or non-circumscribed, homogeneous, moderately hypointense, and < 1.5 cm in greatest dimension
5 Same as 4 but ≥ 1.5 cm in greatest dimension or definite extraprostatic extension/invasive behavior

 

 

 

PI-RADS Assessment of DWI

Score Peripheral Zone (PZ) or Transition Zone (TZ)
1 No abnormality (i.e. normal) on ADC and high b-value DWI
2 Indistinct hypointense on ADC
3 Focal mildly/moderately hypointense on ADC and isointense/mildly hyperintense on high b-value DWI
4 Focal markedly hypointense on ADC and markedly hyperintense on high b-value DWI; < 1.5 cm in greatest dimension
5 Same as 4 but ≥ 1.5 cm in greatest dimension or definite extraprostatic extension/invasive behavior
