An MRI scan produces a picture of your prostate and the surrounding area.

The MRI scan can build up a three dimensional picture of your prostate.

It can help decide how far the cancer has spread in the area of the prostate.

It can help plan surgery or radiotherapy.

You will lie on a table which will move into the scanner.

You will have to lie at still as possible, otherwise the picture may be blurred.

The scan can take 30-40 minutes
