We propose an automated method for detecting aggressive prostate cancer(CaP) (Gleason score >=7) based on a comprehensive analysis of the lesion and the surrounding normal prostate tissue which has been simultaneously captured in T2-weighted MR images, diffusion-weighted images (DWI) and apparent diffusion coefficient maps (ADC). The proposed methodology was tested on a dataset of 79 patients (40 aggressive, 39 non-aggressive). We evaluated the performance of a wide range of popular
