|To Be Determined|
This 100-case, two-day course, is designed to provide practicing radiologists with intense training in the interpretation of multiparametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) and the use of Prostate Imaging – Reporting and Data System version 2 (PI-RADS v2) for standardized communication of imaging findings. Throughout the two-day program, participants will develop their interpretative skills at individual workstations by review of prostate mpMRI cases with pathology correlation. A series of didactic lectures and work-shop on MR-guided prostate biopsy techniques will complement the training session with focus on imaging techniques optimization.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Apply the principles of PI-RADS v2 and the scoring system during the interpretation of mpMRI of the prostate
- Report imaging findings using the standardized format
- Optimize prostate imaging protocols using the mpMRI principles to achieve the best diagnostic performance
- Provide guidance for targeted biopsies of the prostate
- Develop multidisciplinary collaborations and establish a quality assurance program for prostate imaging
Please note: This course will offer the optional Workstation Introduction session at 7:00am on the first day of the course.
