Had a 1.5T mpMRI with contrast, and my insurance covered the 1k cost. The tech said the quality of the images was good, and that my impersonation of a corpse was just fine. Funny that they ask what kind of music you want to listen to, since I couldn't hear it over all the weird sci-fi noises from the machine.
I asked for and received a CD with the slice pics and a tool to display them on any computer. Viewing them I see grey-scale images, some pretty sharp but others not so much. The tool links the front and side views, so if you 'push' thru the slices from a front view, you will also see how 'deep' this is from the side view. Some will have no interest in looking at this stuff, but I'm the guy who asks to be awake during surgery so I can watch.
One thing I learned quickly is that the human body is not an anatomical drawing, and even comparing against other MRIs online only proves that every person is unique. It took awhile, but I can at least identify which organ is which. I can safely say my prostate is bigger than a walnut, but it takes a professional to say much more.
Good news is the doc called and says he (or probably the radiologist) sees nothing of concern in that MRI, but was quick to add there is a lot he can't see. I believe this means the biopsy will be random unless the ultrasound spots something.
