MR images of a 64-year-old man with prostate-specific antigen progression (PSA serum level 0.9 ng/mL) after radical retropubic prostatectomy, with suspected local recurrence. a Axial T2-weighted fast spin-echo image shows, on the zone of right seminal vesicle, a nodular tissue (white arrows) with signal intensity similar to that of muscle. b Axial gradient-echo T1-weighted subtracted image shows no signs of enhancement on the same location as the solid nodular tissue seen on trasverse T2-weighted images. c Diffusion weighted images with a b value of 1.000 and d 3.000 s/mm2 and e ADC map show no diffusion restricted phenomena on corresponding site. These findings are consistent with seminal vesicle remnants with fibrotic evolution
