QP-Prostate is a medical imaging software that aids the analysis of Prostate MRI. It is a modular platform based on a plug-in software architecture that provides the clinician quantitative information: calculation of diffusion (ADC) and perfusion (K trans, k ep , v e ) parametric maps, automatic prostate segmentation (AI) by regions and quantification of prostate volume. This quantitative information is compiled by the clinician in a prostate structured report template based on PI-RADS guidelines.
