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.
