Most, if not all, of us would much prefer a 3 Tesla machine. It gives sharper images, but it is very important that the radiologist who will read it is very familiar with prostate diseases. Typically, a contrast fluid is given at some point during the procedure.

PS anecdote: I was scheduled for a 2 PM prostate MRI at Georgetown U Hosp. Once in the hospital gown, a nurse apologized for a delay because staff had (erroneously) scheduled me for one of their 1.5-T MRI instruments. So I waited, and waited some more, and finally got 'inserted' into the 3-T instrument around 4 PM.
