Figure 8: A 68-year-old man with very high prostatic-specific antigen level (242 ng/ml) with transrectal ultrasound biopsy proved to have adenocarcinoma with Gleason's score: 4 + 3 = 7. (a) Axial T2-weighted imaging fat saturation: diffuse prostate cancer directly invades to right seminal vesicle. The involved right seminal vesicle is enlarged with low-signal intensity). The left signal intensity has normal signal intensity. (b) Axial T2-weighted imaging without fat saturation: prostate tumor (M) directly invades to the right anterior part of rectum (arrow). Note that the right rectoprostatic angle is obliterated as compared with the left side (dashed line)
