Course Overview

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.

Program Objectives

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.
